BOULDER, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 8, 2013 — ITT Exelis (NYSE: XLS) subsidiary Exelis Visual Information Solutions will highlight recent advances in its ENVI image analysis software for desktop, Web and mobile devices at the annual Esri International User Conference in San Diego, Calif., July 8-12. Exelis partners closely with Esri, the developers of the ArcGIS® software platform, to deliver technologies that allow geographic information systems (GIS) users to extract important information from imagery and use it to make more informed decisions.
Using the strong foundation weve created with integrated image analysis tools on the ArcGIS desktop, were now working with Esri to make geographic tools and content available in the cloud, said Jaye Lampe, president of Exelis Visual Information Solutions. This advance will allow people to collaborate more, operate more efficiently, and ultimately reduce the time and resources needed to address image analysis industry problems.
During the international GIS expo and conference, Exelis will highlight how geospatial imagery from a growing number of sensors, in conjunction with ENVI software and ArcGIS, is used to solve problems across industries, particularly in environmental monitoring. Presentations will focus on desktop solutions and how ArcGIS users can now author and publish image analysis services through ArcGISOnlinesm, the Esri cloud-based mapping system released in 2012. Presentations in the Exelis booth #1413 will demonstrate how ENVI tools are used within the ArcGIS platform for applications, including:
- Measuring and mapping coastline erosion.
- Identifying and mapping hazardous marine debris.
- Detecting encroachment of buildings on natural habitat.
- Measuring and mapping forest fire damage extent.
