Woolpert LLP's geographic information systems/information technology (GIS/IT) group recently received the 2002 Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) Foundation Partner of the Year Award (St. Louis region) at ESRI's Business Partner Conference.

Each year, ESRI bestows the award on one partner in each region who works with ESRI to develop strong, dependable relationships. "To be recognized by ESRI as one of its foundation blocks is a very high honor, and we are looking forward to working even closer with ESRI in the future," Woolpert GIS/IT Director and Partner Steve Phipps stated.

Woolpert has a very long and outstanding relationship with ESRI. Woolpert serves as a beta test site for ESRI's GIS software, and the duo have collaborated for nearly 15 years on various GIS projects and marketing efforts (Complete Water Management and SmartGov(tm) tours).
