REDLANDS, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 16, 2010 — Today Esri is launching the 2010 ArcLogistics Government Grant Program, which will award subscriptions to Esri’s new cloud-based vehicle routing solution. One hundred state and local government agencies in the United States will receive grants totaling $450,000 in value.

“This program provides a forum for governments to incorporate an easy-to-use online ArcGIS solution into their daily operations,” said Christopher Thomas, director of government marketing. “Our hope is to assist governments by increasing the productivity of employees who spend time in the field.
