IGE file extension - Erdas Imagine large raster spill data

What is ige file? How to open ige files?

File type specification:

Bitmap image file type icon Bitmap image file type

File extension ige is related to ERDAS IMAGINE, a geospatial data authoring software, and used for so called Large Raster Spill files.

When creating images requiring more than 4GB of disk space in Imagine a two file dataset is created.

The img contains the traditional superstructure, but the actual image data is kept in a separate non-HFA file format, normally with the extension .ige.

This is presumably done to get around the 32-bit file offset limitations of HFA format which makes it impossible to address large images.
