LizardTech Releases MrSID Decode SDK 8.0

“Last year we introduced an updated MrSID DSDK for LiDAR data and now we’re adding support for raster data. This release of the MrSID DSDK allows third-party developers to add support for viewing and decoding data compressed to any version ofthe MrSID file format,” said Jon Skiffington, director of product management. “We’re excited to offer this SDK to our partners and look forward to the release of their products that support MG4 as well as MrSID Generation 3 and MrSID Generation 2. ”MG4 is the new version of the LizardTech MrSID file format that the geospatial industryhas relied on for years. MG4 accommodates new technologies for analyzing the earth by supporting hyperspectral imagery, LiDAR point cloud data, and multi-terabyte datasets.With MG4 users can losslessly compress their geospatial data, mosaic datasets together,color balance raster imagery, and manipulate data in many other ways. LiDAR data compressed to MG4 can be viewed in Merrick MARS, Overwatch LiDAR Analyst, ESRI3D Analyst, and LizardTech’s free GeoViewer. Raster imagery compressed to MG4 canbe viewed with either of LizardTech’s free viewers.A free download of MrSID Decode SDK 8.0 is available at http://developer.lizardtech.com.
