Company to showcase its geospatial line of products
Seattle, Wash. — January 26, 2010 — LizardTech™, a division of Celartem Inc. and a provider of software solutions for managing and distributing geospatial content, is exhibiting in Booth #29 at the DGI Europe 2010 Conference this week at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre, in London, UK.
“At this year’s DGI Europe Conference LizardTech is showcasing its line of geospatial software products, which enable an efficient workflow for high-volume, high-resolution image management,” said Jon Skiffington, director of marketing. “In particular we are eager to introduce the European market to our latest innovation called LiDAR Compressor™ which is designed to turn giant point cloud data into efficient MrSID files.”
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 will showcase its latest product called LiDAR Compressor™ which enables users to turn giant point cloud data into efficient MrSID files that retain 100 percent of the quantized raw data at just 25 percent of the 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.
