OK, this is impressive. The capture of all of the Cape Peninsula's Tiff Colour Orthos was fast and the resultant PlanetGIS dataset is around 600Mb. Renders VERY FAST. Congrats, this is just as good as Sid or ECW (probably better). I Imported the same stuff into ArcMap 8.3... So I ended up with a bigger dataset... And MUCH slower to render. -- RC, Cape Town
