Skyline's 3D Interactive World Gateway Fuses-on-the-Fly MrSID® Raster Data to Deliver a Dynamic Virtual View of the World Shared Across the Web

WOBURN, MA - July 26, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Skyline Software Systems, Inc. (, the pioneer of the 3D Interactive World Gateway, selects LizardTech's new compression and decompression technology to embed into its commercial software line, TerraSuite.  Just as Skyline's 3D technology serves as the de-facto standard in the 3D visualization network-centric industry, LizardTech's MrSID wavelet image format has long been a leading de-facto standard in geospatial applications.

The new MrSID SDK is now embedded into TerraSuite, which enables Skyline's 3D World Gateway to directly access MrSID compressed raster formats. This expands Skyline's existing capability to effectively access, fuse on the fly and disseminate massive amounts of geospatial data (e.g. imagery, terrain elevation, spatial features, GPS) in multiple formats, delivering in real-time, one coherent dynamic virtual world gateway over the Internet.

Users can interactively view, simultaneously share (e.g. lead on-line group at multiple locations through a virtual tour) and thoroughly analyze spatial information.  Various applications of this World Gateway include traffic analysis, network build-out, urban planning, real estate and even Mars exploration.

"To effectively deliver a 3D World Gateway from multiple, huge data sets across the network is the key," states Ronnie Yaron, President and Co-founder of Skyline Software Systems. "Embedding LizardTech's MrSID image compression technology enables our customers to retrieve and visualize in 3D, imagery data stored as MrSID files without a need to pre-process the data."

"With MrSID, millions of GIS professionals worldwide enjoy fast, efficient access to geospatial imagery and aerial photography," explains Karen Morley, LizardTechs vice president of global marketing. "With LizardTech's MrSID format integrated in Skyline's TerraSuite, users can instantly access enormous geospatial imagery via the Internet or any size network."

Just as MrSID is the first and only wavelet image format to be adopted as standard by nearly all Department of Defense agencies, TerraSuite was the first and only network-centric 3D interactive visualization software selected by National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, Army, Marines and Special Operations Command to support joint mission preparation and operations in urban and littoral environments.
