Leica Geosystems’ GIS & Mapping Division establishes new sales channel in India

Leica Geosystems’ GIS & Mapping Division has appointed ERDAS India Pvt. Ltd., as the sole distributor for its Geographic Imaging and Airborne Data Acquisition product lines, and as a sub dealer for the GPS/GIS data collector products. Elcome Technologies Pvt. Ltd will continue to be the main distributor for the division’s GPS/GIS data collector throughout India. The appointment is effective 15 March 2002.

The decision follows Leica Geosystems’ acquisition of ERDAS, Inc., a pioneer and market leader in geographic imaging and remote sensing software, and the remaining 50 percent of the outstanding shares of LH Systems, LLC, a pioneer and leader in systems for aerial photography and photogrammetry, from its joint venture partner BAE Systems. In India, prior to the acquisitions, ERDAS India Pvt. Ltd., Hyderabad, India, was the sole product distributor for ERDAS, the foundation of the Division’s Geographic Imaging products. Elcome Technologies Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, was the distributor for LH Systems, which provides the core Airborne Data Acquisition product line for the Division. Elcome Technologies remains the distributor for other products for Leica Geosystems, in India.
