ERDAS IMAGINE Supports Lizardtech’s Lossless MrSID Technology

Leica Geosystems announced support for Lizardtech’s lossless MrSID technology in its ERDAS IMAGINE product line. IMAGINE users can now quickly and efficiently view and store original-quality imagery for feature classification, military applications or other mission-critical mapping uses. Lossless MrSID 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 re-purposed for fast, easy distribution at any compression ratio. ERDAS IMAGINE products supporting both the latest lossless and previous versions of MrSID include versions 8.6 and 8.5. (Leica Geosystems, Atlanta, Ga.)
