LizardTech – developer of digital imaging software and viewing tools – has been named to the Technical Committee of Open GIS Consortium, Inc. (OGC), a company-government-university coalition engaged in developing common interfaces and protocols for the burgeoning geo-information processing industry.
LizardTech’s geospatial solutions leverage the widespread industry acceptance of MrSID technology, a revolutionary file format that reduces giant imagery up to 95 percent of its original size, while preserving image clarity. The result: Content is infinitely more accessible (and valuable) to users, regardless of their network speed, desktops, or field devices. MrSID’s unique ability to mosaick multiple geo images, its quick image conversion, and lossless encoding ratios also lead to significant time savings. MrSID is endorsed for accuracy by the US Geological Survey and the National Imagery and Mapping Agency, and is compatible with all major GIS software.
