Vricon Joins Esri Partner Network to Expand Use of High-Resolution 3D Geodata

Redlands, California—February 23, 2016Vricon, a leading provider of photo-realistic 3D mapping products and digital elevation models for the defense and security industries, is now a member of the Esri Partner Network. Vricon’s partnership with Esri, the market leader in geographic information system (GIS) software, will help drive the growth and adoption of new technologies for distributing and using 3D geodata.

 

“As we continue to roll out The Globe in 3D, we are excited by the Esri community’s growing interest in next-generation 3D geodata and Esri’s commitment to making 3D content distributable in open formats. We feel that this partnership is a key enabler for users who depend on access to our data for critical operations,” said Magnus Brege, Vricon CEO. “As a new Esri business partner, we look forward to being part of an exceptional group of GIS innovators that are driving new markets as 3D becomes more broadly adopted across a wide range of industries.”

 

Through this partnership, Vricon’s 3D products and digital elevation models will be accessible to the large community of GIS users that have adopted the ArcGIS platform. The partnership will also influence the development and direction of new products and technologies, such as ArcGIS Earth and the I3S format for streaming 3D content that Esri released under Creative Commons licensing last year.

 

“Working with Vricon will allow us to provide consistent, high-value terrain data and imagery of large areas to support critical defense and intelligence operations,” said Jack Dangermond, Esri president. “Through Esri’s open GIS platform, the same Vricon imagery can be accessed by mobile, desktop, and web 3D clients, empowering users throughout large enterprises with high-resolution 3D content.”

 

Vricon and Esri will demonstrate the benefits of this collaboration to strategic customers in the next few months and plan to showcase their combined capabilities more broadly at the Esri User Conference in San Diego, California, in June 2016.
