The lwf file extension is mainly related to a special LuraWave image format.

LuraWave is a family of image compression software that is based on wavelet compression techniques. It is the commercialized version of highly sophisticated imaging technology devel-oped by LuraTech, Incorporated for German space satellite imaging applications, and for Ericsson image transmission via cell phone.

LuraTech was founded in 1993 and its technology was refined from research that was conducted jointly with the German National Space Agency (DLR) and university partnerships. LuraTech maintains academic research partnerships with Stanford and FHTW Berlin universities.

This lwf file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.
