India: NIIT GIS has entered into a strategic partnership with ITT Visual Information Solutions (ITT VIS). Now, NIIT GIS will become the exclusive distributor of the ENVI suite of image processing software products for India, Nepal, Bhutan and Sri Lanka. This suite of ITT VIS products includes ENVI, ENVI EX and IDL products.
Under this agreement NIIT GIS will also begin distributing the newly introduced ITT product, ENVI EX, an image processing and analysis product that is tightly integrated with ArcGIS and designed specifically for GIS applications. Based on ENVI, ITT’s image processing and analysis product, ENVI EX now provides ArcGIS users with ENVI’s image analysis methods and algorithms. The product’s interface guides users step by step through analysing satellite and airborne imagery and data across a wide range of imaging modalities. The integration between ENVI EX and ArcGIS allows GIS users to exchange data and files from ArcGIS to ENVI EX with drag and drop methods that preserve the style, symbology, vectors and layer information from one product to another.
