ESRI – Interoperability and Standards
GIS back in the early nineties…
 Geographic analysis
 Project oriented
 Multiple sources, multiple organizations
 Distributed within a community
 GIS is unique in merging diverse information
 ESRI’s Coverage and Shapefile emerged as
industry standard (“de-facto Norm”)

ESRI – Interoperability and Standards
… GIS today
 Enterprise GIS
 GIS evolving beyond isolated communities
 GIS merging with broader IT infrastructures
 Enabled by distributed networks and Web Services
 Requires international interoperability – standards
ESRI’s commitment to Interoperability and Standards
supports the transition from Geographic Analysis to
Enterprise GIS
