What is a GVRS file?

A GVRS file is a grid-based raster image created by the Gridfour Virtual Raster Store, which is part of the Gridfour Software Project. Primarily, the Gridfour Virtual Raster Store is implemented as a Java API. This API compresses large raster images so applications can process them without overwhelming a device's memory.

More Information

Projects such as Seabed 2030, which aims to map 100 percent of the ocean floor by the year 2030, produce a large amount of raster image-based data. To help applications process that data, developer Gary Lucas began work on the Gridfour Software Project. The Gridfour Software Project's primary goal is to optimize the compression, processing, and analysis of large raster image data sets.

The Gridfour Software Project includes a module called the Gridfour Virtual Raster Store (GVRS). The GVRS API helps Java applications compress and manage raster image data that would typically be too large for a system to process. The API can save this compressed data in GVRS files, for future access and long-term archiving.

How to open a GVRS file

Applications that use the Gridfour Virtual Raster Store (GVRS) Java API can open and process GVRS images. For more detailed information, refer to the Gridfour Virtual Raster Store's official documentation.
