Nick Land Joins ESRI as European Business Development Manager

Redlands, California - November 26, 2007 — Geographic information system (GIS) industry leader ESRI announces that Nick Land has joined the company's European operations. As the new business development manager for cadastre and national mapping agencies, he will strengthen ESRI's relationships with these European agencies and advance national spatial data infrastructure (SDI) implementations.

"We are delighted that Nick has joined ESRI," says Jack Dangermond, ESRI president. "His experience working at EuroGeographics and his engagement with the European Commission and Parliament will help ESRI better serve European cadastre and national mapping agencies."

As the executive director for EuroGeographics, the European Association of the National Mapping and Cadastral Agencies, Land had wide-ranging responsibilities including supporting the European Commission and Parliament on pan-European initiatives, such as the Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe (INSPIRE) and Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES), as well as the development of a number of European mapping products.

Previously, he worked at the Ordnance Survey in Great Britain in a number of roles including director of Market Development, Solutions (Professional Services), and International Consultancy.

"It has been a real privilege working for EuroGeographics and supporting the European cadastre and mapping agencies to realize their objectives in Europe," says Land. "I am now looking forward to continuing working with them in my new capacity at ESRI, particularly on issues such as the implementation of national and European spatial data infrastructures, where the cadastre and mapping agencies have such a key role to play."

Land earned his B.Sc. in geography from the University of London and a Ph.D. in LIS/GIS from the University of East London. He also passed the final examinations of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) in land surveying.
