LizardTech™ Introduces MrSID™ Plug-in for ArcGIS 3D Analyst at GEOINT 2009 Symposium

New Plug-in Enables MrSID Generation 4 LiDAR files to be used in 3D Analyst

SEATTLE — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 19, 2009LizardTech, a division of Celartem Inc. and a provider of software solutions for managing and distributing geospatial content, announced the release of the MrSID Plug-in for ArcGIS 3D Analyst at the GEOINT 2009 Symposium in San Antonio, Texas, hosted by the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) October 19-21, 2009. LizardTech is exhibiting in booth #517.

Until now, LizardTech's customers, who widely use ArcGIS 3D Analyst, were not able to load point cloud datasets that were compressed to MrSID Generation 4 using LiDAR Compressor into ESRI's 3D Analyst product. However, with the release of this free plug-in, 3D Analyst users can load point cloud datasets compressed to MrSID Generation 4 to create surfaces for use in line-of-sight and terrain modeling, visualization, and spatial analysis.

“LizardTech’s goal is to give customers tools for using their point cloud data compressed with LiDAR Compressor in the applications they use every day,” said Jon Skiffington, LizardTech director of marketing. “Many of our customers use ArcGIS, but were not able to use it with MrSID files created in LiDAR Compressor. Now our customers can easily load point cloud datasets compressed to MrSID Generation 4 into ESRI’s 3D Analyst product.”

The free MrSID Plug-in for ArcGIS 3D Analyst is available for download here: Additional information can be obtained by contacting one of LizardTech’s sales representatives at 206.652.5211.
