Through this new partnership, Esri, the market leader in geographic information system (GIS) technology, and Perceptive Pixel will together develop revolutionary new GIS solutions that leverage Perceptive Pixel's advanced multi-touch technology platform, giving business and government professionals the ability to analyze, collaborate on, and present complex geospatial information using the power and ease of true, unlimited multi-touch interfaces.
"This new relationship will immediately benefit both companies' significant customer base in the government, defense, intelligence, broadcast media and energy industries, as well as the broader GIS community," said Esri president Jack Dangermond. "GIS technology is about to take another leap forward with the emergence of new and innovative ways to interact with geospatial information. We are thrilled to be with Perceptive Pixel."

"They also understand that harnessing these possibilities requires new ways of thinking about developing software. We are proud to join the Esri Partner Network and anticipate that the solutions we build together will truly impact the way GIS is done."
