In this interview, Steve Trammell explains ESRI’s deep expertise in mapping and location.
In terms of the latest trends in the mobile space, Steve points out that everyone now is a “mobile sensor”. This means we can develop applications where users can pass information back to businesses or governments with their location encoded. For instance a citizen could use an app to capture a photo of a broken pipe or graffiti and send this on to the authorities who could issue a work order and let the citizen know that the problem is being addressed.
ESRI was one of the first partners to deploy a PureSystems Application at a client site. As ESRI is available as a pattern in the PureSystems Application environment, Pure customers have the ability to utilize the new geo-event functionality to geo-code and map a data stream on the fly.
