At their booth, LizardTech will be conducting demonstrations of LiDAR Compressor™ software, which turns giant point cloud datasets into efficient MrSID® files, along with recently launched GeoExpress® 8, which enables geospatial professionals to compress and manipulate satellite and aerial imagery. With the launch, LizardTech introduced the MrSID® Generation 4 ( MG4™) format for compression of raster data, adding support for multispectral data, alpha channels and improved mosaicking. With MG4’s support for compressing hyperspectral data users can use GeoExpress to compress up to 255 bands of geospatial data to the MrSID format.
