“Customers have been asking us for years to return to offering a free standalone viewer for MrSID and JPEG 2000 imagery. We’re happy to again offer them a free application that will allow them to view a variety of imagery formats like MrSID, JPEG and TIFF, as well as vector files and server based data,” said Jon Skiffington, LizardTech senior product manager. “Its easy to use, modern user interface makes viewing of imagery fast and efficient.”
