November 26, 2012

Redlands, California—Quality Positioning Services (QPS) has signed an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with Esri, the world leader in GIS technology. The agreement enables QPS to bundle its QINSy and Fledermaus products with Esri software and provide a complete hydrographic survey, data management, and charting solution.

"This worldwide OEM agreement with Esri allows us to provide our clients with seamless access to comprehensive GIS software within a multifunctional, integrated survey software suite," said Lindsay Gee, product manager, QPS.

QPS will incorporate two of Esri's ArcGIS applications into an end-to-end hydrographic package, QINSy Premium. One application is ArcGIS for Maritime: Bathymetry, which indexes, searches, and models bathymetric data. The other is ArcGIS for Maritime: Charting, which makes it possible to capture, maintain, and manage nautical data in a centralized database. The package will also include QINSy hydrographic data acquisition and processing software as well as Fledermaus 3D visualization and data analysis technology.

"Esri's partnership with QPS demonstrates our commitment to support all aspects of the marine community's work at sea, on coastal areas, and in inland waters," said Rafael Ponce, director of maritime business development, Esri.

The QINSy Premium solution will provide hydrographers, marine scientists, planners, and engineers with a seamless integrated solution for robust marine survey data collection, efficient processing, and state-of-the-art storage and distribution of data products.
