Integrate with Existing Applications

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.

Reduce Storage Costs

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.

The Fastest Way to Serve Up Geospatial Images and LiDAR

Deliver the geospatial data your users need, when and where they need it.

Express Server Manager

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.

Flexible Display Options

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.

Multispectral Imagery Support

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.

Support for Multiple Image Resolutions

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.

Customizable Web Applications

Leverage the open source software delivered with Express Server, including customizable CSS, Javascript, Leaflet, and the Tomcat-based ExpressZip, to customize and extend them to fit any need.

Room to Grow

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.

“Express Server enables us to serve all of our MrSID-formatted data out of the same enterprise web map service as those coming from cloud services, making for a comprehensive distribution environment.”
John Peterson, Geospatial Unit Leader, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-Albuquerque District
