Hi Mike,
i'd like to reproject 100 raster maps (ecw) while keeping only the worldfile (prj, tab). The only way i have found is to export them in ecw format changing the projection. Do you know a way to only create world files ?
Take care !

    If you are actually reprojecting the data you will have to do a full export since just changing the tab and prj won't work for a true reproject since it is not a simple linear transformation. If you just want to generate TAB and PRJ files from existing ECW files but not change the projection, do the Batch Conversion from ECW to ECW and check the box to generate TAB and PRJ and also the box to 'Only Generate Metadata Files'. Then it will just run through and create the TAB and PRJ files for the input ECW files but not export a new file.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
