With file size reduction of up to 95 percent, MrSID is especially designed for massive image files that need to be accessed quickly. Both locally and via the Internet, MrSID offers instantaneous viewing, panning and zooming of high-resolution imagery. LizardTech offers the MrSID Viewer as a plug-in that is free to download, there is a link from the Search Results pages, or you may go to the LizardTech site.
