Plugin for ecw services with AutoCAD

image ERDAS has just announced a new plugin for AutoCAD that allows access to images (ECW and JPEG 2000) by means of a protocol called ECWP.

ECW is a format that has many advantages, mainly the compression without significant loss of quality, since a tiff image of 200 MB can weigh up to 8 MB; Very handy for desktop management and web publishing purposes.

It is understood that with this plugin, AutoCAD (desktop) applications can now connect to IWS services, which would allow many companies to take advantage of access to images without having to call them via raster manager ... and should consume less resources from the PC

It is available for 2007, 2008 and 2009 versions with AutoCAD Map3D and Civil 3D, to download it you must visit this address

and to know about its functionality and potential, an online seminar (webinar) 25 June 2008 for which you can subscribe.
