Top five reasons to try GeoExpress 9.5.3:

Binary Point File Support
GeoExpress now supports the input and output of Binary Point Files BPFs are often used in Geiger-Mode LiDAR data. This format allows for multi-angle illumination that penetrates foliage, removes shows and eliminates voids for accurate data.

NAD83(2011) Support
GeoExpress now supports EPSG Coordinate Reference Systems and Coordinate Transformations related to NOAA’s National Adjustment of 2011. For more on this project, visit the NOAA website.

Better Color Balancing
In GeoExpress 9.5.3, a new color balancing method applies color correction to each band in the image, rather than only to the intensity.  This produces better results for most datasets and is now the default behavior. You can switch between intensity and per-band correction methods in the Color Balance Manager to use the right method for your imagery.

Custom Watermarks
For more flexibility, there is no longer a size limitation for custom watermark files. Previously, the maxium size for a watermark was 128 pixels × 128 pixels.

Simpler Licensing
Always working to make your user installation experience as simple as possible, we’ve improved our licensing process. Import a license file for single workstation licensing or install the License Server Utility to add floating licenses with ease.
