DataMaster provides increased data visualisation for unique insights, enabling analysts to make better decisions.’

Additional DataMaster 5.3 software upgrades include support for 32-bit Geo-referenced Tagged Image File Format (GeoTIFF) and National Imagery Transmission Format (NITF) data improving precision and ability to handle more data types; streaming of and image format conversion to JPEG2000 images as well as JPIP (JPEG 2000 Interactive Protocol) streaming for improved image review; and expanded metadata support for GeoTIFF and NITF imagery.
