Tuesday at ESRI UC

 
July 14th, 2009 by Susan Smith

My day began with a breakfast hosted by ITT Corporation, who announced their new image processing product for GIS professionals. The new product, ENVI EX, is the first image processing and analysis solution resulting from a partnership with ESRI. The product is tightly integrated with ArcGIS, and is designed to be easier to use and integrated with GIS workflows. The demo shown was a classification workflow with vector data in ArcMap. To use it, Richard Cooke, president of ITT’s Visual Information Solutions group, said, you don’t need to know image science. “No longer are imagery and GIS living in separate worlds.”

The addition of Lawrie Jordan, original founder of ERDAS, to the ESRI team has spearheaded the integration of imagery with GIS at the company. This technology integrates the ArcGIS projection engine into ENVI.

The exhibit floor was not as crowded with exhibitors this year, and some exhibitors also said that traffic was light. The Map Gallery also had fewer exhibits than in previous years.

So far, themes encountered on the exhibit floor include: imagery, community input, real-time map, grab-and-go geospatial products.

During the keynote, there seemed to be very few empty seats, so I would guess that attendance is still high for a trade conference in today’s economy.
