“This year LizardTech is celebrating the 20th anniversary of MrSID,” said Jon Skiffington, director of product management. “Many attendees at the Esri conference may remember what it was like before MrSID made it easy to work with large image datasets on the desktop. Esri and its users were some of the first to embrace MrSID, so we hope the attendees will join us in celebrating this milestone.”
