Faster GIS Data Collection With Capturx(TM) Software for Digital Pens to Be Showcased at 2009 ESRI Federal User Conference

SEATTLE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Feb 17, 2009 -- Attendees at this week's ESRI Federal User Conference in Washington, D.C. will get a firsthand look at the latest trends in GIS field data collection using digital pens. Capturx software for fast GIS collection will be showcased on the conference exhibit floor and in the International Development paper session. Over 28 federal agencies and numerous state and local governments are using Capturx to enable maps, forms, designs, and notes to be printed on ordinary paper, marked up with a digital pen, and then integrated directly into ESRI® ArcGIS, Microsoft® Office, and CAD applications.

Capturx solutions provide agencies and military teams with fast and reliable ways to collect GIS data in the field without the time and cost of transcribing paper or deploying mobile computers.

From February 18 - 20, attendees can learn how Capturx recently helped agencies improve emergency response and preparedness during a Terrorism Emergency exercise in New England at Adapx booth #325. Teams were able to easily collect information about changing field conditions on paper maps using digital pens, which automatically integrated data into ArcGIS for immediate sharing with the Emergency Operations Center.

Capturx will also be featured in the INT Land Tenure and Economic Development paper session on Thursday, February 19 from 8:30 am to 10:30 am in Room 101. This session will present multiple projects underway that utilize GIS in innovative ways to enhance the effectiveness of economic development in Ghana, Timor-Leste, and the US Virgin Islands.

"We're pleased that agencies will get a hands-on opportunity to experience Capturx solutions at the ESRI Federal User Conference," said Pete Zubowicz, Business Development Manager at ESRI. "Capturx for ArcGIS can help a broad range of agencies speed data collection with ArcGIS -- whether it's helping to prepare for emergencies as in Nashua or to help recover as in the case of developing nations."
