ClueTrust Product Supports Viewing MG4 files on iOS Devices
SEATTLE, Wash. — April 3, 2012 — LizardTech® , a provider of software solutions for managing and distributing geospatial content, announced the integration of its MrSID® Generation 4 Decode SDK (MG4 DSDK) into ClueTrust’s CartoMobile® version 1.2 for iOS®.
ClueTrust, based in Reston, Va., specializes in developing geospatial tools for the Macintosh and iOS devices. With the integration of LizardTech’s MG4 DSDK, CartoMobile customers will have the ability to easily view their MrSID formatted imagery on their iOS devices such as the iPhone® and the new iPad® without the need for any external conversion prior to loading. Optimized for the retina display of the new iPad, CartoMobile enables users unparalleled access to their high resolution imagery for the most detailed data collection expeditions.
Gaige B. Paulsen, CEO at ClueTrust, anticipates this integration will be very well received by users of CartoMobile. He notes, “As the first mobile GIS vendor to support viewing of MrSID Generation 4 files, we’re thrilled at the opportunity to work with LizardTech to provide broader access to high resolution imagery for iOS users.”
“We’re pleased with this integration as it confirms LizardTech’s commitment to our customers in enabling them to use our product in as many other applications as possible,” said Jon Skiffington, director of product management. “Now CartoMobile users will be able to use MrSID compression to carry imagery of larger areas and at higher resolution in the same space.”
ClueTrust relaunched commercial GIS on the Macintosh in 2009 by releasing Cartographica®, an OS X-native GIS which is available at macgis.com. Cartographica provides extensive import and export, integrated projection management, intuitive exploration, and powerful analysis. In January 2011, ClueTrust brought interactive GIS and geospatial field data entry to the iPhone and iPad with CartoMobile® which is available on the App Store® and is available in English, French, and Spanish. More information about Cartographica and CartoMobile are available at macgis.com.
