Extensis’ Legacy of Geospatial Imagery Solutions

Extensis has a rich history in the geospatial industry.

At the core of all our GIS imagery solutions is MrSID — a unique, proprietary compression format first developed at the Los Alamos National Research Laboratory. This format changes the way GIS professionals can access, view, edit, and share geospatial imagery.

It has an impressive compression rate for lossless and visually lossless compression. The MrSID compression format uses wavelet technology and also creates built-in pyramids, which enable users to move through large imagery files quickly and easily, viewing selected areas as they please — in real time. Other file formats can cause significant delays in viewing, as programs are forced to reload entire files for every action a user takes.

LizardTech enabled users to implement this technology at various points in their workflow, from ingesting visual data to serving it up, and everything in between. Since LizardTech merged with its sister company Extensis, this technology is now complemented with powerful digital asset management tools for managing, accessing, searching, and sharing imagery collections.
