LizardTech LiDAR Compressor enables you to turn giant point cloud data sets into efficient MrSID files
LizardTech LiDAR Compressor enables you to turn giant point cloud data sets into efficient MrSID files that retain 100 percent of the raw data at just 25 percent or less of the original file size (lossless compression). If storage requirements are critical, you can reduce your LiDAR file sizes by 90 percent or more by choosing a higher compression ratio and letting LiDAR Compressor select the best way to reach a desired file size (lossy compression). Unlike raw LAS or ASCII data, LiDAR files compressed to MrSID are easily managed resources you can extract derivatives from over and over again.
With the release of LiDAR Compressor, LizardTech unveiled a new and improved version of the MrSID format, MrSID Generation 4 (MG4). It is still the same MrSID format you have known for years, offering the most advanced compression technology available, but now MrSID enables you to compress your LiDAR data, then view and access it faster than ever.
