How-to Video: Compress Camera Photos with GeoExpress

One of the cool, but lesser known capabilities of GeoExpress is its ability to compress not only geo-enabled images, but consumer camera images as well! Anyone with a GeoExpress license can take a JPEG photo from a smartphone or DSLR and compress it to a MrSID or JPEG2000 at a fraction of its original size. The benefits of this to the individual mobile device user are obvious: Compressed images take…

Tiles and precincts and progression orders, oh my!

The JPEG 2000 standard provides for a variety of encoding options available: depending on where you sit, this makes for either a very cool experience or a very daunting experience. For the geospatial realm, where we deal with very large images, this plethora of choices is particularly important, because the choices you make at encode time can significantly affect both encode and decode performance, for both memory usage and CPU…
