LizardTech launched GeoExpress 9.5 at this week’s Esri International User Conference in San Diego.
Exhibited at Booth 2310, GeoExpress enables geospatial professionals to compress and manipulate satellite and aerial imagery. In addition to compressing raster data, version 9.5 now features the ability to natively compress LiDAR data to MrSID and LAZ formats, saving up to 75 percent on storage space.
“The launch of GeoExpress 9.5 is particularly exciting because of the many benefits this latest version brings not only to our raster image collection customers, but also LiDAR data collection customers,” says Jeff Young, LizardTech global business development manager. “GeoExpress 9.5 is now your one stop shop to compress raster and LiDAR imagery to MrSID and LAZ formats.” The latest version of GeoExpress also includes batch color balancing, multipolygon cropping and exporting images to custom dimensions and tiles. Esri International User Conference attendees are encouraged to visit the LizardTech booth for new feature demonstrations.
At Esri, LizardTech is also showcasing the rest of its geospatial products: Express Serversoftware for high-performance delivery and publication; LiDAR Compressorsoftware, which turns giant point cloud datasets into efficient MrSID files; and the recently updated GeoViewersoftware, which is offers a speedy way to view MrSID and JPEG 2000 imagery.
