ESRI to Host GIS Pavilion at 2009 APWA Congress Featuring Infrastructure Solutions

Business Partners Will Showcase a Wide Range of GIS Applications Tailored for the Recovery and Reinvestment Act

Redlands, California—August 18, 2009—ESRI will host a Geographic Information System (GIS) Pavilion at the American Public Works Association (APWA) Congress and Exposition that will highlight solutions that can take advantage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The event will be held at the Columbus (Ohio) Convention Center September 13–15, 2009, and the GIS Pavilion will be staged in booth 1639. ESRI is also a corporate sponsor of the APWA event.

ESRI will be joined by ESRI Canada Limited in hosting 10 valued business partners at the pavilion: CartêGraph, CompassCom, EnterInfo, GeoVisus, OneGIS, RouteSmart, TC Technology, Transmap, VUEWorks, and Woolpert. GIS applications related to asset, pavement, project, and work order management; automated vehicle location (AVL); data capture and data migration; permitting; routing; and sign inventory will be demonstrated.

Says Chuck Cmeyla, ESRI’s public works industry manager, "I am always excited about this particular convention. It is the one event where many of the public works executives assemble, and in our GIS Pavilion, they can get their questions answered by leaders in the GIS community. This year is particularly important because we will be demonstrating how GIS can be used for tracking stimulus money and to help provide both transparency and accountability in managing infrastructure projects."
