Making Sense of Compression

  From LizardTech’s Robert Parker, when timeliness of raster imagery processing matters, what compression level means and the future of compression. Read more in a recent feature on TrajectoryMagazine.com. View the article here. “The file sizes of raster images captured by satellite, aircraft, and UAVs are massive and getting larger all the time. Large digital files can slow image processing workflows, increase archiving costs, and jam wireless delivery networks. These…

Esri UC Wrap Up – Still Time to Take Our Survey

Thanks to all of you who visited the LizardTech booth last month at the Esri User Conference. Of the record 17,000 attendees, we think we gave demos of our new GeoExpress 9.5 software to at least 16,999 of you. We’re just glad you didn’t stop by all at once. As expected, the most popular feature in the new version of GeoExpress is the ability to compress LiDAR data files to…

GeoInformatics Runs LizardTech Story on Effective Image Management

The September issue of GeoInformatics Magazine featured an article by LizardTech on effective image management and delivery. Check it out here or read on for a short summary. The article analyzed two organizations in the US that faced the challenge of burgeoning image data and came up with the following strategies based on their experiences: Use image compression to minimize storage costs and complexity. Select standards-compliant services to maximize interoperability…

In the Media: Discussing LiDAR’s plenty

LizardTech software architect and occasional Zoom blogger Mike Rosen and I put together an article for GeoWorld about LiDAR data — why LiDAR is so big (both in file size and in popularity), the havoc that its size has caused in efforts to harness its impressive imaging power, and the various ways the geospatial industry has attempted to bring this leviathan to its knees. Among other things, Mike is lead developer…

Talking about Express Server 8

When we release a product that we feel as good about as Express Server 8, we want to talk about it. Todd Danielson of GeoPlace.com obliged us by interviewing our director of product management, Jon Skiffington, in Denver when we launched the product, and he’s published the podcast on the GeoPlace.com website. Among other things, Jon discusses Express Server’s new admin interface and support for Geospatial PDF as a source format.…

Interviews with the director

Our director of product management, Jon Skiffington, was ready to meet the press at the recent Esri International User Conference in San Diego. Which was a good thing, because the press showed up in the form of Sanjay Gangal of GISCafé and Alexis Brumm of Point of Beginning (POB) Magazine. First, here’s a video of Jon’s chat with Sanjay, in which he wastes no time dishing up a very accessible one-minute…
