The most exciting aspect of this collaboration is the ability to quickly and easily enable GIS capabilities to help local government best serve its citizens.
Redlands, CA (PRWEB) April 10, 2009
Tele Atlas, a leading global provider of digital maps and dynamic content for navigation and location-based solutions, has joined ESRI's Small Municipal and County Government Enterprise License Agreement (ELA) program to provide local governments with enterprise-wide licenses for ESRI's ArcGIS software and Tele Atlas' comprehensive street data to power essential GIS deployments. The ESRI Small Municipal and County Government Enterprise License Agreement (ELA) program will help local governments better serve their citizens with functionality to perform emergency response and preparedness, permitting and inspection, incident/crime analysis, hazardous materials inventory, planning and many other vital government functions and services.
Many smaller governments do not have the financial resources or personnel to leverage the GIS software and data that could protect lives and property while saving time and money. Through the ESRI ELA, local governments gain access to a central, enterprise-wide resource that can provide seamless geocoding, mapping and routing functionality across all of the local government's departments and agencies. The license permits enterprise-wide access to ESRI's ArcGIS software and Tele Atlas' highly accurate street data for a period of three years.
ESRI President Jack Dangermond says, "Tele Atlas' participation in the Small Municipal and County Government ELA program is in keeping with our long-standing collaboration. By making our combined services available through one agreement, Tele Atlas and ESRI put the geographic approach to solving problems within easy reach of local governments."
"Tele Atlas and ESRI have always worked together to bring data to governments when they need it most," said John Cassidy, Vice President of GIS and Government for Tele Atlas. "The most exciting aspect of this collaboration is the ability to quickly and easily enable GIS capabilities to help local government best serve its citizens."
The ESRI Small Municipal and County Government ELA program provides access to the spatial technology that local governments need with a straightforward three-tiered pricing schedule. The program is designed for governments in the United States that serve populations of 100,000 or less.
