MrSID Image Compression using GeoExpress

GeoExpress is a powerful compression and preparation sofware, for GIS and geospatial imagery.

More and more high-definition satellite, aerial and drone imagery is being used throughout just about every industry.

And whilst that provides invaluable insights to people all around the world, the ever-increasing file sizes can make sharing, viewing, and manipulating this data extremely difficult and in some cases, expensive.

GeoExpress, originally created by LizardTech now owned and managed by Extensis, enables anyone to compress imagery to the industry-standard MrSID format.

The MrSID 'wavelet compression' file format supports lossless and visually lossless end-products, enabling users to shrink file sizes to their individual specifications, without sacrificing image quality.

GeoExpress is more than just compression. The software includes editing capabilities for such as cropping and color balancing, while also enabling users to reproject images and mosaic them together.

Reduce File Size, Maintain Image Quality

MrSID is able to halve the file size of images, with no loss of data.

This means that storage costs can be significantly reduced just by converting archive imagery to MrSID

If some data loss is acceptable, GeoExpress can compress images to 5% of their original size whilst the images remain visually lossless

Compressed images are easier to store, access, and share. Their small file size makes them accessible even on mobile devices and in low bandwidth environments.
