Compression Software for Images and LiDAR Data

Is file size slowing you down?  File size matters when working to efficiently complete your workflow.

GeoExpress can be a value-add to your software suite, compressing imagery and LiDAR to more manageable file sizes, without harming the integrity of the image and data. You can easily compress images at 20:1 ratios to make sharing, publishing, and storing images so much easier. GeoExpress provides a true lossless compression, with additional capabilities for cropping, mosaicking, reprojection, and more. GeoExpress is an intuitive, easy-to-use software solution for compressing images for use in your daily processing and storage needs.

GeoExpress enables geospatial professionals to compress georeferenced imagery in MrSID format, JPG2000, GeoTIFF lossless and NITF formats. The GeoExpress compression allows users to shrink file sizes without sacrificing image quality or spatial accuracies.

GeoExpress also provides additional editing capabilities when compressing geospatial imagery. You are able to crop your data, run basic contrast and color balancing, mosaic tiled data into one composite mosaic, reproject and more.


Reduce File Size, Maintain Image Quality

Maximize space, optimize usage, and make it easier to distribute data by compressing image files and geospatial data to as much 5% of their original size or cutting a file size in half — all while maintaining visual image fidelity. Images can routinely be compressed 20:1 of original size with no image quality loss.

GeoExpress enables raster compression and LiDAR compression, converting large datasets to MrSID, JPEG 2000, or LAZ formats.

Compressed images are easier to store, access, deliver and share. Their small file size makes them accessible even on mobile devices, downloading data is easier than ever

Customize Your GIS Imagery

  • GeoExpress provides a variety of editing tools that allow you to create the exact image you need. You can:

  • Crop, color balance, reproject (even to custom projections), and more.

  • Combine multiple images of different resolutions and projections into seamless mosaic datasets.

  • Create custom compressed image tiles of your datasets.

  • Create MrSID files using your existing GIS imagery and datasets.

  • Export only selected sections of imagery you want, at the exact size and resolution you need, cropping to coordinates, shape files, kml files or manually draw cropping rectangles.

  • Use alpha bands to add true transparency to your imagery that have non rectangular borders.

  • Integrate compressed imagery datasets with a variety of GIS applications.

Industry-standard MrSID format integrates seamlessly with most GIS applications. Process, classify, and interpret your imagery without compatibility concerns. GeoExpress compressed data can be used in nearly all geospatial applications, including ArcGIS, Global Mapper, QGIS, Autodesk, ERDAS, ENVI, SOCET GXP, and Microstation.
