Rugged, field-ready handheld with integrated GPS will feature ESRI’s ArcPad.

Building on the companies’ strategic alliance to develop mobile Geographic Information System (GIS) solutions, and ESRI, the world leader in GIS technology, announced that ESRI will begin reselling Trimble’s GeoExplorer CE series with its ArcPad 6.0 mobile GIS software. The GeoExplorer CE series is the world’s first Windows CE device with an integrated Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver.

The GeoExplorer CE series is a rugged, portable and powerful handheld device. Featuring ESRI’s ArcPad 6.0 mobile solution GIS software and Trimble’s GPScorrect software extension, the GeoExplorer CE sets a new standard for field mapping and mobile GIS applications.

In early 2002, Trimble was selected to participate in ESRI’s Corporate Alliance Program. In February 2002, Trimble and ESRI announced the formation of a strategic alliance to develop Mobile GIS solutions. Mobile GIS addresses the needs of field inspectors, maintenance teams, utility crews, emergency repair workers, and other field workers who require timely access to GIS data in the field. Mobile GIS integrates GPS technology, GIS software, and portable, rugged field-ready hardware. To facilitate the exchange of information to and from the field, these innovative solutions leverage advances in wireless technology and the Internet. With mobile GIS, databases become directly available to field-based personnel whenever and wherever information is needed.
