ESRI's ArcGIS Now Supports Lizardtech's Lossless MrSID 07.15.2003

Expanding on the market acceptance of Lizardtech's lossless MrSID technology, Lizardtech has announced today viewing support for MrSID Generation 3 (MG3) into ESRI's ArcGIS product line. ESRI ArcGIS users now can take advantage of MrSID lossless and advanced lossy images in their ArcGIS applications for feature classification, military applications or other mission critical imaging uses.

Incorporated into the recently released GeoExpress with MrSID version 3.0, lossless MrSID technology preserves images with pixel-for-pixel fidelity in a greatly compressed format, easily reusable in future applications. Once in lossless format, MrSID imagery can be repurposed for fast and easy distribution at any compression ratio.

"We are pleased to extend our long-term relationship with Lizardtech," said Rich Turner, senior product manager - ArcGIS, ESRI. "This integration ensures ESRI ArcGIS users now have access to view their existing MrSID imagery and also take advantage of the great improvements in Lizardtech's MrSID Generation 3 technology."

"ESRI users from ArcView 3 to ArcGIS can now dramatically improve their imaging capabilities with our next-generation MrSID technology in GeoExpress," said Karen Morley, Vice President of geospatial imaging at Lizardtech. "GeoExpress will not only allow users to encode into advanced lossless and lossy MrSID formats, but they can also use other recent workflow enhancements in ArcGIS such as the ability to mosaic individual MrSID tiles or create localized updates on existing MrSID mosaics. We look forward to working closely with ESRI to further extend the value their customers obtain from their high resolution raster imagery."
