LizardTech Celebrating 20 Years in Business
LizardTech, a provider of software solutions for managing and distributing geospatial content, celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and reflects on how it all started with the introduction of MrSID two decades ago.
To celebrate LizardTech's 20th anniversary, the company is holding a contest asking participants to say a word or two about how MrSID has come to their rescue. Participants are asked to send in their recollection or tribute to email@example.com by July 10th, 2012. Three winners will be selected at random, with the first winner to receive an iPad and the two runner ups to receive $50 gift cards to Amazon.com. The winners will be announced via Twitter at Esri International User Conference in San Diego on July 24th.
Since the arrival of the file format, LizardTech has introduced other tools to help geospatial professionals in their everyday workflow. LizardTech's geospatial line of products include GeoExpress software, which enables geospatial professionals to compress and manipulate satellite and aerial imagery, Express Server software for high-performance delivery and publication, and LiDAR Compressor software, which turns giant point cloud datasets into efficient MrSID files.
