High depth images Other devices that produce data sets that are often treated as images for viewing and measurement produce data with a much greater range than a camera. For instance, a scanned stylus instrument that measures the elevation of points on a surface may have a vertical resolution of a few nanometers with a maximum vertical travel of hundreds of micrometers, for a range-toresolution value of 105. This requires storing data in a format that preserves the full resolution values, and such instruments typically use 4 bytes per pixel.
