What is a JP2 file?
A JP2 file is a compressed bitmap image created using JPEG 2000 Core Coding. It incorporates a wavelet compression algorithm instead of Digital Cosine Transform (DCT) compression, which is used by standard JPEG images. JP2 files can be stored using lossy and lossless compression.
JP2 files are also seen as .JPX files.
