Florida DEP Secures ESRI GIS for Entire Organization

Enterprise License Agreement Improves Application Development and Productivity

Redlands, California — December 04, 2009 — The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) now has an enterprise license agreement (ELA) with geographic information system (GIS) leader ESRI. The agreement provides unlimited amounts of ArcGIS software to meet the GIS needs of Florida DEP's 3,500 employees around the state.

"The ELA gives us more flexibility," said Jonathan Watson, GIS coordinator, Florida DEP Office of Technology & Information Services. "We can install ArcGIS software on as many servers as we need to develop more advanced applications and services. It also allows employees to access the GIS software they need anytime, day or night, so they can do their jobs effectively."

Among its many geospatial initiatives, the department has encouraged its users to use its own authoritative imagery with supporting metadata. With its newly acquired GIS resources, that will be easier to achieve, as caching maps in 2D and 3D with ArcGIS Server makes the high-resolution, dynamic imagery faster while providing important information such as when the imagery was collected. With ArcGIS Server, Florida DEP will also update the Web application MapDirect ( www.dep.state.fl.us/gis) with improved capabilities for better spatial analysis and decision making.

"Florida DEP has been a GIS leader in the state for the past 15 years," said Christopher Thomas, ESRI government industry solutions manager. "The software and support the department has with this ELA give it the tools it needs to continue developing a GIS that supports operational and mission-critical applications."
