They're totally different formats.

However, Manifold does come with its own IMS. Haven't used it myself but I've heard it's pretty good. I would recommend looking around on the Manifold forums for some more background information.

It's pretty good until you have a 160 gig raster to store into a database then you run into a problem because you have 5 additional levels of raster files.

"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality.  Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach.   That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me?  I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.”  Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and  that stubborn fog clouding  my vision with nothing but darkness."

That would be hard for any software... I'd try splitting it a bit...

Exactly! But when you have it as ecw or in the db manifold ims will serve it pretty quickly :-)
