Toronto, Canada: INRO and ESRI Canada announced an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement to embed ESRI’s ArcGIS Engine Runtime into INRO’s Emme travel demand forecasting and Dynameq dynamic traffic assignment applications and distribute the bundled software worldwide. The new agreement provides a solution that allows transportation planners access to GIS data and maps with ArcGIS technology directly from INRO software, without separate ESRI licensing requirements.
Emme 3.3 and Dynameq 1.5 (yet to be launched) would the first versions of INRO software to embed ArcGIS Engine Runtime. ArcGIS map layers appear alongside native Emme and Dynameq map layers, providing transportation planners with rich visual context to support visualisation, network editing, analysis and report generation.
Michael Florian, President, INRO, said, “In combining our technologies, users can now access ArcGIS-supported geospatial data and view them within the Emme and Dynameq products. This allows us to provide our users with a wider range of capabilities out of the box.”
Alex Miller, President, ESRI Canada, said, “INRO has a proven track record in bringing leading-edge solutions to the transportation planning field. Partnership with INRO will provide benefits of GIS technology to Emme and Dynameq users worldwide.”
