Record high download rate indicates high demand and satisfied customers
Seattle, Wash. — June 3, 2009 — LizardTech, a division of Celartem Inc. and a leading provider of software solutions for managing and distributing digital content, announced that during the first week of release nearly 3,000 copies were downloaded of their newly launched GeoViewer 3.0, now offered as a free, standalone application for viewing geospatial imagery and vector overlays.
“We knew our customers would be excited about the free GeoViewer, but we didn’t expect the number of downloads to be this high,” said Jon Skiffington, LizardTech senior product manager. “The feedback has been incredibly positive, and the number of downloads after just one week of availability shows how eager our users are to try this new product.”
The free GeoViewer application replaces LizardTech’s previous GeoExpress View utility that was offered for $299. GeoViewer 3.0 enables users to view and export layers from varied sources, such as local repositories, Express Server catalogs, and WMS and JPIP servers. GeoViewer supports a wide range of input formats and exports to GeoTIFF, PNG and JPEG. It’s the most efficient means of viewing MrSID and JPEG 2000 images.
