Trimble and ESRI Form Alliance for Mobile GIS Solutions 02.21.2002

Technology to address need for timely GIS data in the field.

Trimble of Sunnyvale, Calif. and ESRI of Redlands, Calif. have formed a strategic alliance to work on mobile GIS solutions. The alliance brings together Trimble’s expertise in field-rugged handheld Global Positioning System (GPS) technology and ESRI’s market-leading GIS software to expand the power of an enterprise GIS to an organizations’ mobile workers.

Mobile GIS addresses the needs of field inspectors, maintenance teams, utility crews, emergency repair workers, and many other field-workers who require timely access to enterprise GIS data in the field. Mobile GIS integrates GPS technology, portable hardware and GIS software. To facilitate information to and from the field, these innovative solutions will leverage advances in wireless technology and the Internet. With mobile GIS, databases become directly accessible to field-based personnel whenever and wherever information is needed.
