File Name Formats & Software

.tif and .jpg file formats are recognized by many image viewing software packages including some provided in Window95/98 and other operating systems capable of reading and scaling tif files. Otherwise, an image viewing software will need to be installed.
.sid files are aerials compressed to the MrSID format enabling us to send clear, sharp,digital aerials over the Internet with no visual loss in quality from the original.;
NOTE: MrSid Aerials have an approximate 30 min. download
time at 26,400 baud and you will be required to download before viewing.
After downloading the file you may view the aerial from within the browser window with the MrSID online viewer or you may choose to download the stand alone version.
For MrSID  viewing products visit the Lizard Tech website.

      

.pdf are files converted from the many different file formats we house to one, easy to view and printable format.

Adobe Acrobat Reader is free, and freely distributable, software that lets you view and print Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files.
