All the projection information is lost when I import the image into Didger using an ESRI World file (TFW).

ESRI World files contain coordinates but they do not contain projection information.  As a result, when a TIFFwith an ESRI World file [*.TFW] is imported the image is georeferenced but projection information is not included. You can remedy this by setting the projection parameters of your image in Didger and exporting the image as a GeoTIFF.


To do this in Didger 5:

  1. Click File | Import, select the image and click Open.
  2. The Assign Coordinate System dialog will appear. Set the correct projection parameters and click OK. The image will import in the specified projection. You can now export to a GeoTIFF.

If the image file is already imported into the project, follow these steps:

  1. Select the image and click Image | Image Registration and Warping.
  2. Toggle the Specify radio button, and click the Coordinate System button.
  3. Specify the projection parameters and click OK.
  4. Click OK. Now the image has a projection and you can export to a GeoTIFF.


To do this in Didger 4:

  1. Click File | Import, select the image and click Open.
  2. When asked to specify the Georeference Sources, choose ESRI World file and click OK
  3. The Specify Image Projection dialog will appear. Set the correct projection parameters and click OK. The image will import in the specified projection. You can now export to a GeoTIFF.

If the image file is already imported into the project, follow these steps:

  1. Select the image and go to Image | Image Registration and Warping.
  2. Go to the Options tab, toggle the Specify radio button, and click the Coordinate System button.
  3. Specify the projection parameters and click OK
  4. Click OK. Now the image has a projection and you can export to a GeoTIFF.


To do this in Didger 3:

  1. Import the file into a raster project, using the georeference information from the ESRI World File.
  2. Go to Image | Calibrate Image and specify the projection parameters. Click Next until you finish the calibration process without changing anything else.
  3. Go to File | Export and export the file as a TIFF file saving the spatial reference information in GeoTIFF Format.
