Improved software for manipulating imagery

July 18th, 2013, Published in Articles: PositionIT

LizardTech, a provider of software solutions for managing and distributing geospatial content, has announced the launch of GeoExpress 9. The software enables geospatial professionals to compress and manipulate satellite and aerial imagery and the latest version is four times faster than before with support for spanning multiple jobs across multiple cores. This increase in speed enables users to complete projects faster than ever before within the application. This release also introduces intelligent encoding, with the software automatically reconfiguring itself for optimal performance. The software automatically chooses to encode, optimise or update based on the encoding operations that the user chooses, which results in high performance with minimal training. It also has powerful tools for reprojecting, colour balancing, mosaicking, cropping and more. The product supports alpha bands for true transparency control and multi- and hyper spectral imagery for more flexible band utilisation. The interoperability within the software suite means that users can configure and export directly to Express Server software directly from GeoExpress.
