I am attempting to use the gdal_merge utility to mosaic pre-registered aerial photographs and provide a worldfile for the output. I am using RGB satellite images in .JPG format averaging about 7MB per image. The problem is that my output file size for say 10 images is extremely large ( 5.9 GB). Also it takes a very long tome for the utility to complete with only 10 maps. Is there anything I can do to drastically reduce the size of my output to better reflect the initial input sizes or any way I can speed the process up? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
