# JPEGLS¶

Driver short name

JPEGLS

This driver is an implementation of a JPEG-LS reader/writer based on the Open Source CharLS library (BSD style license).

The driver can read and write lossless or near-lossless images. Note that it is not aimed at dealing with too big images (unless enough virtual memory is available), since the whole image must be compressed/decompressed in a single operation.

## Driver capabilities¶

Supports CreateCopy()

This driver supports the GDALDriver::CreateCopy() operation

Supports VirtualIO

This driver supports virtual I/O operations (/vsimem/, etc.)

## Creation Options¶

• INTERLEAVE=PIXEL/LINE/BAND : Data interleaving in compressed stream. Default to BAND.

• LOSS_FACTOR=error_threshold : 0 (the default) means loss-less compression. Any higher value will be the maximum bound for the error.
