GeoViewer Pro is a standalone GIS image viewer for compressed MrSID files, raster imagery, LiDAR point clouds, and vector layers.
“GeoViewer Pro enables anyone – whether a GIS professional or map consumer – to view and interact with geospatial data sets without a full GIS software package,” said Terry Ryan, Federal Government Sales Manager at Extensis.
GeoViewer Pro was developed by LizardTech, now Extensis, as a paid multi-feature upgrade to the free GeoViewer application. It allows end users to view satellite, aerial and drone image files, as well as LiDAR data and GIS vectors. Moreover, it is a free way to view MrSID, JPEG 2000, NITF, LAS, and LAZ files created with the popular GeoExpress software.
“The GeoViewer application has been embraced by thousands of users worldwide, especially by GIS managers who want to fully leverage the value of their geospatial information by providing a no-cost way for users and the general public to view and interact with their image and LiDAR files,” said Ryan.
In addition to supporting a variety of raster image formats, GIS shapefiles, and even KML files, the core functionality of GeoViewer includes customizable display settings, support for OGC map services, exporting files, and displaying maps in their native projections. Users can make and save measurements and annotate geospatial files create new images or maps from the larger data sets for exporting and sharing with another user.
Current GeoViewer users will be able to upgrade to the now-free Pro version without a new download.
