EnviroInsite does allow for the display of MrSID images. The code that processes those images is facilitated by public-domain libraries provided by Celartem, Inc. dba LizardTech.  Since MrSID files are routinely greater than one gigabyte, EnviroInsite extracts a user-specified portion of the MrSID image to process to user specifications and writes out an image file in a common format specified by the user. That file is automatically georeferenced and inserted in the EnviroInsite view.

To insert a MrSID image, select Insert> Image from the main menu and select the image file from the browser. When a MrSID image is selected, the FormMrSID dialog box opens.



Image File Path: MrSID file path. Click the Browse button to browse to the MrSID file.


Coordinates (Lower Left/Upper Right & Easting/Northing): Coordinates of rectangular area to be drawn to the view. May be modified by editing these values or clicking the Draw Rectangle button.


Draw Rectangle: Click Draw Rectangle to redefine the bounds of the portion of the image to be represented in the view.
