Any device or connection can access your raster files and LiDAR point clouds through Express Server. Industry-standard protocols assure compatibility with virtually all GIS applications, so no special training is needed.
Express Server intelligently extracts and delivers only the pixels in view to reduce the time required to display an image. Massive data files can be streamed and viewed quickly and easily, with no time-consuming downloads.
All you need is a WMS client to integrate Express Server into your current workflow. Use the included open-standard WMS API to seamlessly integrate with existing applications, apply our own custom-built API optimized for MrSID files, or customize our built-in user interface to match your current website.
Express Server is optimized for serving out compressed images, whether they are in MrSID, JPEG 2000, LAZ, or other compressed formats. It reads and serves imagery directly from your compressed files—reducing storage and bandwidth costs.
Deliver the geospatial data your users need, when and where they need it.
Install and configure Express Server without ever touching the command line. Use the Express Server Manager to create image catalogs, browse files, set custom projections, and more.
Change the order of image bands, control download options, or change projections. All it takes is a few clicks to customize how you want your images to be displayed.
Express Server lets you use the latest MrSID format to host your multispectral imagery and have full control over which bands to distribute to your users.
Extract and deliver only the pixels you need for faster display and reduced server load to view imagery at all resolutions without storage-intensive image pyramids. Scenes display the instant you zoom.
Built-in tools for synchronizing catalog information between multiple servers are included, which means you can easily add another to your server farm for load balancing or in heavy traffic situations.
