Displaying jp2 files

Topics: SharpMap v0.9 / v1.x

I am using v0.9 with the raster patch and have successfully displayed a geotiff map in a windows form, but I can't display a jp2 file. The error message says it couldn't load the jp2 file because "not recognised as a supported file format".

Other discussions imply that once the raster patch is working both geotiff and jp2 should work is this right or am I missing something?

hi amw,

You could best use the version from the trunk. The raster layer is a wrapper around the gdal dlls that are part of fwtools 2.2.0: http://fwtools.maptools.org/.

You could first try to get the jp2 files to load in fwtools. If that works try it from SharpMap.
