GeoCue Product Supports Viewing MG4 files
Seattle, Wash. — February 24, 2011 — LizardTech®, a division of Celartem Inc. and a leading provider of software solutions for managing and distributing geospatial content, announced the integration of its MrSID® Generation 4 Decode SDK (MG4 DSDK) into GeoCue Corporation’s LP360 for ArcGIS™ and other LP360 software applications.
GeoCue Corporation, which is the parent company of QCoherent Software LLC, offers the LP360 product line, a LiDAR software extension for the Esri™ ArcGIS Environment. With the integration of LizardTech’s MG4 DSDK, LP360 customers will have the ability to efficiently input and decode LIDAR data that has been compressed using LizardTech’s LiDAR Compressor™ software.
Lewis Graham, president and chief technical officer at GeoCue, believes this integration will be very well received by users of LP360 software. “Our customers have asked for tools to input, decode, and view compressed LiDAR point clouds, and with the integration of LizardTech’s MG4 DSDK, they can do that easily and efficiently.”
“We’re pleased with this integration as it confirms LizardTech’s commitment to our customers in enabling them to use our product in as many other applications as possible,” said Jon Skiffington, director of product management. “Now LP360 users will be able to handle compressed LiDAR datasets in ArcGIS.”
