A full-service GIS company, Esri supports the implementation of GIS technology on the desktop, servers, online services, and mobile devices. These GIS solutions are flexible, customizable, and easy to use.
Esri software is used by more than 350,000 organizations worldwide including most U.S. federal agencies and national mapping agencies, 45 of the top 50 petroleum companies, all 50 U.S. state health departments, most forestry companies, more than 24,000 state and local governments, and many others in dozens of industries.
While Esri and Trimble have worked collaboratively for a number of years, in early 2002 the two organizations announced the formation of a formal strategic alliance directed at mobile solutions. The alliance brings together Trimble's expertise in field-rugged handheld GPS technology and Esri’s market-leading GIS software to expand the power of an enterprise GIS to an organization's mobile workers.
According to Jack Dangermond, President of ESRI:
"We believe that by leveraging Trimble's expertise in the field, our users will be provided with more options and new mobile solutions. This strategic alliance will also further expand the role of the mobile client in an organization's GIS enterprise environment."
A significant aspect of the field assessment was to accurately map and record shelter site locations. The team used high-performance GeoXT/Nomad Trimble data collectors combined with ArcPad to digitally record transitional shelter site locations.
