Here’s a shocker – Industries that use a lot of raster data are also big users of LizardTech products. And oil & gas extraction and other energy-related industries definitely fall into that category. A subset of the overall energy sector, oil & gas clients rely on our compression technology in just about every phase of […]
Developers developers developers! Version 9 of the MrSID SDK for raster is now available. Notable changes include multi-threaded image decoding and support for GML in JPEG 2000 files. View the complete list of changes here, or log in to the developer homepage for a free download.
I can hardly keep up with developments to talk about here. A few weeks ago we released version 8.5 of our MrSID SDK, an update that adds support for per-band decoding. Per-band decoding means that LizardTech’s partners and customers now have the ability to decode only the bands that they need from multi- and hyperspectral […]
The newly released MrSID Decode SDK is really two sets of libraries and tools in one package. And part of it was released more than a year ago under another name. Hopefully, geospatial professionals have more to do than wonder why this is, but for those with light workloads or long memories, here’s some background […]
Last July we unveiled the MrSID® Generation 4 Decode SDK to coincide with our release of the first groundbreaking version of LiDAR Compressor™ software. The new version of the MrSID format (MG4) supports LiDAR compression. We released a plug-in for using MG4 in ArcGIS 3D Analyst last October and unveiled our own MG4 Decode tool […]
We’re pretty excited. Last week we announced that version 11.01 of Global Mapper supports LizardTech™ MrSID™ Generation 4 (MG4) among its many supported elevation formats. Mapmakers who use Global Mapper will now benefit from being able to load point clouds compressed using LizardTech Lidar Compressor™ into Global Mapper. Earlier this week we were able to […]
Because we support multiple platforms (Windows, Solaris, Linux, Mac), our Decode SDK is written in C++. Some years ago, our C++ APIs used to regularly lead to the question, “do you support Java?”. The answer was always sorry, no, we’re not a Java shop and we don’t have any Java bindings… But we’ve always provided […]
