MrSID for GIS Centre of Excellence

  24/02/2011
The GIS Centre of Excellence within the Office of Agriculture and Geoinformation (ALG) in Switzerland has recently purchased GeoExpress 8 through its German reseller, GAF AG.



The Centre is an agency of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs and employs around forty people to manage the agriculture and environmental resources of the region. This work involves the use of a large amount of high quality aerial photograph and to overcome the storage and access problems that these large file sizes create, the agency will now convert their images to MrSID.


LizardTech has recently released the latest version of their flagship image compression and preparation software; GeoExpress 8. This product introduces a new version of the MrSID format; MG4 which allows users to compress a huge range of raster formats to the industry-standard compression format and facilitates compressing of LiDAR data clouds.
