LizardTech Exhibits at ESRI Federal User Conference

Seattle, Wash. — January 18, 2011 — LizardTech®, a division of Celartem Inc. and a leading provider of software solutions for managing and distributing geospatial content, is exhibiting in Booth #624 at the ESRI Federal User Conference in Washington, D.C., this week.

“The GIS professionals at this week’s ESRI Federal User Conference can expect to see the latest version of LizardTech’s GeoExpress® product which introduced the MrSID® Generation 4 (MG4™) format for compression of raster data. MG4 adds support for multispectral data, alpha channels and improved mosaicking,” said Jon Skiffington, director of product management. “We’ll be conducting demonstrations of GeoExpress 8® along with our other products, showcasing the many benefits our products bring to the geospatial community.”

GeoExpress, along with the rest of 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 industry 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’s LiDAR Compressor™, enables users to turn point cloud data into efficient MrSID files that retain 100 percent of the raw data at just 25 percent of the original 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.
