Seattle, Wash. — March 6, 2008 — LizardTech, a division of Celartem, Inc., and a leading provider of software solutions for managing and distributing digital content, will participate as an exhibitor at this year’s GITA Geospatial Infrastructure Solutions Conference at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, March 10-12, in Booth 321, and the Oracle Spatial User Conference on March 13 at Seattle’s Sheraton Hotel. LizardTech is going to showcase its recently launched GeoExpress 7 product for geospatial image compression and manipulation as part of the company’s Express Suite package, which also includes Spatial Express for storage, and Express Server for high-performance delivery and publication.
"At the GITA and Oracle Spatial User Conferences LizardTech will showcase Express Suite, which enables an efficient workflow for high-volume, high-resolution image management and distribution, something that our customers can use in their everyday geospatial image workflows.” said Jon Skiffington, LizardTech senior product manager.
LizardTech Express Suite consists of the following geospatial software products:
• GeoExpress provides image manipulation tools such as reprojection, lossless encoding, color balancing and compression to improve workflows, ensure interoperability and aid standards compliance. GeoExpress encodes geospatial image data to the industry standard MrSID and ISO standard JPEG 2000 multiresolution image formats, both easily reusable in downstream applications, without any compromise in image quality.
• Spatial Express is a toolset for moving massive raster imagery in and out of an Oracle Spatial database for use in geospatial applications. Using industry and ISO standard multiresolution formats, Spatial Express enables organizations to centralize storage of their geospatial data, reduce load and memory usage on database servers, and lower storage space requirements by 95 percent or more.
• Express Server is a server application for rapidly distributing large datasets of raster imagery. With Express Server, users on any device over any connection access imagery faster. Express Server enables organizations to serve more users in less time using widely adopted standards and familiar tools – without adding hardware or bandwidth.
