FAQ: How does ArcIMS use the header information in a GeoTIFF?

Question

How does ArcIMS use the header information in a GeoTIFF?

Answer

ArcIMS reads and uses the spatial reference information from the header of a GeoTIFF.

ArcIMS does not require a GeoTIFF to have a world file.

If a world file is available, the spatial reference information in the world file takes precedence over the information in the GeoTIFF's header.
