SEATTLE, Feb. 4, 2014—LizardTech®, a provider of software solutions for managing and distributing geospatial content, announced the launch of Express Server® 9 software. Express Server is the leading image-delivery software for compressed raster imagery, including multispectral imagery. It uses patented technology to reduce storage costs, decrease image loading times and handle thousands of image requests, all without sacrificing visual quality.
The latest version of Express Server comes equipped with the ExpressZip web application for exporting imagery straight from the web browser. Now, users can view all of their collections and query by location, by keyword, by projection, and more. If users need to take their imagery on the go, they can use the built-in selection tools to export their regions of interest. The entire ExpressZip application is open source and completely customizable.
“Express Server is the fastest, most stable, and easiest way to distribute compressed, high-resolution raster imagery via standard protocols,” said Jon Skiffington, director of product management. “And now with ExpressZip, our customers will be able to access all of their collections in one place and export imagery straight from the web browser.”
In addition, the improved upgrade functionality automates the process of migrating all image catalogs so users don’t need to manually update thousands of catalogs when installing a new version of Express Server. There’s no need to re-create existing image catalogs; instead, administrators just point Express Server to the existing catalog database and click Upgrade.
Both the ExpressZip application and the improved upgrade process mark a continuation in LizardTech’s commitment to creating accessible and easy-to-use software. Other easy-to-use features from recent releases include the Express Server Manager, a simple web interface for configuring and managing Express Server, and the free 30-day Express Server trial.
