US: Earth elevation data provider Vricon has signed a reseller agreement with Esri. The agreement will enable users of Esri software and solutions to purchase Vricon data and solutions directly through Esri, streamlining their acquisition processes.
The agreement allows Esri to sell Vricon’s 3D products and digital elevation models to a large community of GIS users who have adopted the ArcGIS platform. Esri’s investment in and development of its i3s data format is opening up new opportunities for advanced 3D visualization and analysis based on Vricon data for Esri’s broad — and often passionate — user base.
“Because Vricon customers can access our data today through Esri’s open GIS platform, this was a natural extension of the relationship between the two companies,” said Magnus Brege, Vricon CEO. “Teaming with Esri as a reseller provides our shared clients with easy access to global Vricon 3D coverage.”
“We are pleased to continue our relationship with Vricon and provide their high-value terrain data and imagery on the ArcGIS platform,” said Jack Dangermond, Esri president.
Vricon and Esri plan to showcase their combined capabilities more broadly at the Esri User Conference in San Diego, California, in July 2017. Vricon joined the Esri Startup Program in February 2016.
