A commonly used format for spatially referenced .tiff raster files (i.e. with a location at a specific point in space).

To simplify: a scanned map can be in tiff format, but georeferencing (sometimes called calibration) e.g. in QGIS, results in the GeoTiff format.

In the System we encounter Geotiff:

  1. while adding raster files to the Geoserver
  2. while loading NMT files into the NMT module
