SEATTLE, Wash. — February 16, 2010 — LizardTech, a division of Celartem Inc. and a leading provider of software solutions for managing and distributing digital content, is exhibiting in Booth #208 at the ESRI Federal User Conference in Washington, D.C., this week.
“At this year’s ESRI Federal User Conference we will showcase to the intelligence community the continued benefits of using LizardTech products for compressing and distributing raster imagery, as well as our tools for compressing LiDAR data to our latest version of the MrSID format,” said Jon Skiffington, director of marketing. “We’ll be conducting demonstrations of our products, but we’re particularly excited to show our customers LiDAR Compressor, designed to turn giant point cloud data into efficient MrSID files which are viewable in numerous applications, including ArcGIS 3D Analyst.”
LizardTech’s Express Suite™ line of geospatial products combines the industry’s best image manipulation and compression tools with the best solutions for image storage and distribution in standard formats. The Express Suite products – GeoExpress™, Spatial Express™ and Express Server™ – work together seamlessly and interoperate with virtually all geospatial applications and protocols. In addition, LizardTech’s latest product, LiDAR Compressor™, enables users to turn point cloud data into efficient MrSID files that retain 100 percent of the quantized raw data at just 25 percent of the original file size (lossless compression). Unlike raw LAS or ASCII data, LiDAR files compressed to MrSID are easily managed resources from which derivatives can be extracted over and over again.
