tiff2geotiff

usage: tiff2geotiff [options] input... output
where options are:
 -g file	install GeoTIFF metadata from <file>
 -4 proj4_str	install GeoTIFF metadata from proj4 string
 -e file	install positioning info from ESRI Worldfile <file>
 -a		append to output instead of overwriting
 -m file	Specify filename with multiple timestamps and image placement info:
			Each line of file has date/timestamp, and 8 floats;
			first four are lon/lat corners of plot area,
			second four are relative positions of plot corners in page.
			This option requires option -4
 -M file   Specify filename with multiple timestamps, w/o georeferencing:
			Each line of file has date/timestamp only
			Option -4 must not be specified.
 -n llx lly urx ury
			Install longitude/latitude extents;
			Four lon and lat values must in quotes in the order:
			lower-left longitude, lower-left latitude,
			upper-right longitute, upper-right latitude
			This option requires option -4
			Option '-m' overrides this option
 -o offset	set initial directory offset
 -p contig	pack samples contiguously (e.g. RGBRGB...)
 -p separate	store samples separately (e.g. RRR...GGG...BBB...)
 -s		write output in strips
 -t		write output in tiles
 -i		ignore read errors
 -d		truncate 8 bitspersample to 4bitspersample

 -r #		make each strip have no more than # rows
 -w #		set output tile width (pixels)
 -l #		set output tile length (pixels)

 -f lsb2msb	force lsb-to-msb FillOrder for output
 -f msb2lsb	force msb-to-lsb FillOrder for output

 -c lzw[:opts]	compress output with Lempel-Ziv & Welch encoding
 -c zip[:opts]	compress output with deflate encoding
 -c jpeg[:opts]compress output with JPEG encoding
 -c packbits	compress output with packbits encoding
 -c g3[:opts]	compress output with CCITT Group 3 encoding
 -c g4		compress output with CCITT Group 4 encoding
 -c none	use no compression algorithm on output

Group 3 options:
 1d		use default CCITT Group 3 1D-encoding
 2d		use optional CCITT Group 3 2D-encoding
 fill		byte-align EOL codes
For example, -c g3:2d:fill to get G3-2D-encoded data with byte-aligned EOLs

JPEG options:
 #		set compression quality level (0-100, default 75)
 r		output color image as RGB rather than YCbCr
For example, -c jpeg:r:50 to get JPEG-encoded RGB data with 50% comp. quality

LZW and deflate options:
 #		set predictor value
For example, -c lzw:2 to get LZW-encoded data with horizontal differencing
