Esri and Trimble Announce Call for Demonstration Projects for Mobile Government Initiatives
Twenty State or Local Governments to Receive Software, Hardware, and Training to Develop Mobile Government Application Templates
Esri, the world leader in GIS software, along with Trimble, the world leader in global positioning systems (GPS), has announced its 2009 Mobile Government Grants. The program consists of two separate programs, Mobile Standard and Mobile Advanced, which will award hardware, software, and training totaling a value of $89,980 to a total of 20 state and local government agencies.
The goal of this program is to foster innovative approaches to solving government problems through the combined use of GIS, GPS, wireless, and server technology. Projects must demonstrate increased efficiencies in collecting data for decision support or increased productivity in delivering government services.
Esri and Trimble recognize that the leading thinkers and innovators of technology within government should be presented with opportunities to move their projects forward while sharing those efforts with their peers using a best practices approach.
Esri and Trimble support and encourage the spirit of public-private collaboration and call for demonstration projects from governments in all disciplines within the United States wishing to establish an integrated server and mobile GIS solution.
