AgroGIS maps Brazil using ECW and ER Mapper

San Diego, CA, December 2002 -- Earth Resource Mapping is pleased to announce the formation of a strategic partnership with AgroGIS, Brazil. AgroGIS is an established leader in the provision of GIS solutions and data consultancy in the Agricultural Market in southern Brazil. AgroGIS intends to offer ER Mapper as part of their integrated GIS management solutions package.

After several years in the GIS Brazilian market, AgroGIS’s flagship product - AgroGIS 2.0 has played an important role in widening the use of Earth Resource Mapping’s compression file format ECW. Thanks to ECW a TB airphoto mosaic can be compressed and stored in a standard field notebook. Even with a limited amount of RAM (64 MB), AgroGIS can load the compressed file and quickly perform zoom in/out operations. In conjunction with real time GPS tracking this solution provides great help to the field operators collecting observations on the ground.

Joe Fernando Martins of Agro GIS said: “Today, Brazil plays a major role in the world’s food production chain and the use of technological solutions is growing very fast. Industries in the Agricultural sector are increasingly using geo-spatial images to analyse their data and monitor their crops. After analysing several options, we have selected ECW as AgroGIS native image file format. We look forward renewing our relationship with Earth Resource Mapping in Brazil.
