London, UK — June 15, 2006 — LizardTech, a division of Celartem, Inc., and a leading provider of software solutions for managing and distributing digital content, announced that it will be one of the sponsors at the forthcoming Laser-Scan User and Partner Conference 2006.
Held at the Robinson Center in Cambridge, UK, from June 27th to June 29th 2006, the conference will examine the best ways of maximizing the return on investment made by organizations that purchase and use or reuse spatial data. Therefore the theme of the conference is ‘Spatial Data Supply Chain: Delivering ROI’. Presenting at the conference will be speakers from some of the geospatial industry’s biggest users and suppliers.
LizardTech’s compression and image manipulation tools are key software in spatial workflows within organizations around the world. With the recent release of Spatial Express, MrSID and JPEG 2000 files can be stored natively within an Oracle Spatial database. LizardTech increases the value of large images and image data sets by making them more accessible to more people within and outside these organizations.
“Laser-Scan is expert in providing operational solutions to organizations with large or complex spatial databases. There is a great fit between what they and their partners do for companies and LizardTech’s compression and storage capabilities.” said Alistair Maclenan, manager of LizardTech EMEA.
Steven Ramage, product and marketing director at Laser-Scan added, “We are very pleased to add LizardTech as a sponsor for our 17th annual User and Partner Conference. Both organizations have invested in respective product capabilities for supporting de facto industry standard technologies such as Oracle Spatial. We are also both supporters of standards-based solutions developed collaboratively through the Open Geospatial Consortium. LizardTech’s participation complements a powerful line-up of industry sponsors for our event.”
