LizardTech Around The World!

Greetings!  We always love hearing from our users – and after being in business for 25 years we’ve come to realize how globalized our user base has truly become in this ever-shrinking, ever more interconnected world.  From the U.S., to Japan, to Brazil – this geospatial industry that we work in has put us in touch with friends and colleagues from around the world.  And in that spirit, for this…

We were able to get an up-close and personal view of what’s involved in replacing a four-lane highway that floats on water.

We attended some outstanding presentation tracks, and…

One of the things that made this trip particularly memorable for me was geocaching all over the Big Island. My wife and I found one cache that…
