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.
