ESRI announced the integration of SciPy and ArcGIS. Scientists, engineers and GIS professionals will use SciPy to get more value from ArcGIS for scientific applications. Users will find it easier to develop geoprocessing tools that perform specific scientific and technical tasks. SciPy is a Python-based ecosystem of open-source software for mathematics, science and engineering. Python is an easy-to-learn, highly scalable, stable scripting language. Users that access SciPy script from within the Esri ArcGIS environment will no longer need to “start from scratch” to program processes for solving scientific and technical problems. SciPy will be integrated with ArcGIS through a staged release. Initially, it will be available for ArcGIS Pro as an optional install when ArcGIS 10.3 is released. Later, SciPy will be automatically installed in ArcGIS 10.3.1. esri.com
