ESRI’s geodetic conversion engine integrated into SignalSoft’s Location Manager

ESRI, the world’s leading provider of geographic information system (GIS) software, has entered into an agreement with SignalSoft to integrate ESRI’s geodetic conversion source code library into SignalSoft’s Location Manager product, a standards-compliant location gateway for mobile operators worldwide to deploy either emergency or commercial location-based services. Location Manager can be configured as a Mobile Positioning Center (MPC) for ANSI-41 networks or as a Gateway Mobile Location Centre (GMLC) for GSM networks. Since location-based services applications typically serve local areas, applications often require non-World Geodetic System 1984 (WGS 84) conventions in order to establish the location of a mobile device. ESRI’s geodetic conversion source code library is the engine behind the scenes that enables such capabilities.
