February 17, 2009 -- YARMOUTH, ME ― DeLorme, the innovation leader in geospatial and GPS technology, will be exhibiting for the first time at the Feb. 23-25 ESRI Petroleum User Group conference in Houston. The company will be previewing an upcoming extension that will enable ESRI users to export map views for display on the DeLorme Earthmate® PN-40 handheld GPS.
The ruggedized, waterproof Earthmate PN-40 GPS is capable of displaying aerial imagery, topographic and street maps, points of interest, and nautical charts. The device utilizes a high-visibility 65K-color transflective TFT color screen for readability in any lighting conditions.
The PN-40 is engineered for use with proprietary DeLorme software. The in-process extension will allow ESRI users to bypass that requirement, while still having access to the receiver’s powerful navigation and data collection features.
