What image processing software package issues have been encountered when trying to use U.S. Landsat Analysis Ready Data (ARD)?


So far, the following image processing software issue has been discovered: 

ERDAS Imagine 2015 does not support the .TIF file compression used in Landsat ARD, and will not import a Landsat ARD tile. This issue can be mitigated by upgrading to ERDAS 2016. 

Any additional software issues will be added to this FAQ.
