November 10th, 2009 by Susan Smith
ESi®, the developers of WebEOC®, the world’s first web-enabled crisis information management software, and 3-GIS™, a major provider of geospatial consulting and systems integration services, have announced the formation of a new joint venture company, Tucuxi™ (“Too-Koo-Shi,” www.tucuxisoftware.com.)
The new company will develop advanced geospatial software products that provide a common operating picture to crisis response teams and decision makers at emergency operations centers at government and corporate installations around the world.
“Our first release is WebEOC Mapper Professional 2 that brings the power of visualization technology into the emergency operations center,” said Adam Geitgey, Tucuxi’s chief technology officer. “Without any specialized GIS or mapping expertise, emergency managers can use Mapper 2 to create a dynamic, geographically-based common operating picture utilizing WebEOC situation boards.” press release -November 5, 2009
