Implementing GeoKeys (GeoTIFF tags)

GeoTIFF files support standard TIFF comments and tags, but also contain six additional data tags describing the image location, scale, projection, and other information useful for topographic applications.

There are 65536 possible GeoKey values. The GeoTIFF specification recommends the following ranges (domains) for GeoTIFF data:

0..1023

Do not use; reserved for future use.

1024..2047

GeoTIFF configuration keys.

2048..3071

Geographic/Geocentric CS Parameter Keys.

3072..4095

Projected CS Parameter Keys.

4096..5119

Vertical CS Parameter keys.

5120..32767

Reserved.

32768..65535

Private - use to store your own data.

1. When saving a new image as FILE_GEOTIFF with a save function, such as: LFile::SaveFile, LFile::Save.

2. By updating an existing file using LFile::WriteGeoKey or LFile::WriteMetaData.

NOTE: To save a region* inside a TIFF file, you must have an unlocked  Vector, Document,  or Medical Imaging license.

* Regions are not supported on Windows CE.
