GeoExpress can stitch together multiple raster images and LiDAR files into a geographically continuous mosaic while the data is being compressed

Mosaic and Color Balance in GeoExpress

Sure, you know GeoExpress as the software you rely on to compress raster imagery and LiDAR point clouds to make them easier to process, share and archive. But did you know GeoExpress also offers a dozen powerful tools you can use for further manipulation and enhancement of your geospatial data? We call them our Hidden Gems, and in the next several blogs, we’ll tell you how to take advantage of…

Seeing is Believing: Watch GeoExpress 9.5.1 in Action

GeoExpress Video: Be More Productive, Just Like Scott!

Are you overwhelmed by too much satellite and aerial raster data? Too many applications and end users to satisfy? No more room left in the digital archive for additional images or LiDAR files? You’re not alone. In fact, you’re just like Scott, the GIS hero in our new GeoExpress video. Watch how Scott uses GeoExpress to compress his data files for easier storage and faster processing. He even applies a…

GeoExpress 9.5.1 is More Streamlined and Able to Mosaic LiDAR Data

GeoExpress just keeps getting better and better. Last summer, we rolled out LiDAR point cloud compression for the first time in version 9.5, allowing you to shrink your LiDAR elevation data sets to one-fourth their original size without any loss of information. And this year, we’ve already taken the new LiDAR data handling capabilities one step further by introducing seamless point cloud mosaicking. Earlier this month, we released GeoExpress 9.5.1…

A Tale of Two Pixels: Nodata and Transparency in GeoExpress

GeoExpress is a software package that provides image compression technology for converting raw imagery into the compressed MrSID format. Not all MrSID files are created equally, however, which makes understanding the differences between them very important. MrSID Generation 3 (MG3) files are a legacy format still used by many GIS applications. MrSID Generation 4 (MG4) is the newest file format available in GeoExpress. MG4 files offer many benefits when using…
