Redlands, California- ESRI, the world's leading geographic information system (GIS) technology producer, announces that Interactive Visualization Systems (IVS) 3D has joined its business partner program. IVS 3D is a leading vendor of interactive 3D visualization and analysis software for marine information. This partnership will benefit organizations with workflows that visualize and analyze bathymetric data for use in the maritime community including the defense, petroleum, environment, and hydrographic sectors.

"A tightly integrated solution between IVS 3D Fledermaus and ESRI ArcGIS is something our users have been requesting," says Timothy Kearns, maritime deputy program manager, ESRI. "This partnership gives our companies the opportunity to work together, improving customer workflows and ensuring not only a seamless dataflow but a more efficient use of both technologies."

The two companies are working toward the ability to read and write from IVS 3D's Fledermaus suite of software directly into ESRI's geodatabase, the common data storage and management framework for ArcGIS, ESRI's comprehensive GIS software. Storing data in a geodatabase ensures that it is in a centralized location, maintaining integrity and consistency in the most efficient way in a multiuser environment. Fledermaus will be able to embrace a service-oriented architecture, one of the most powerful characteristics of ESRI enterprise GIS technology. Added benefits for ArcGIS users include the ability to perform sounding selection and surface modeling to international standards, as well as its support of a wide variety of hydrographic formats within ArcGIS.

"Partnering with ESRI gives our clients access to the most comprehensive suite of GIS software available," says Lindsay Gee, chief executive officer, IVS 3D. "Our work together ensures that the mapping and charting needs of geoscientists, oceanographers, and hydrographers are met with an integrated solution that meets their needs from ship to shore."
