I attended the Esri Partner Conference in Palm Springs last month and had the opportunity to meet and speak with Jack Dangermond, founder of Esri.

This man started what was then called the Environmental Systems Research Institute in 1969, and has since found ways to use mapping technology to solve some of the world’s largest problems. Today, Esri’s technology is utilized in almost every sector imaginable. It is easy to see why Forbes recently hailed him “The Godfather of Digital Maps.”
CRE Tech®, Inc. has formed a partnership with Esri, and we are working to integrate powerful Esri GIS data in TheAnalyst® PRO. This data is providing us with more comprehensive, accurate results for our Location Risk Analysis Reports, which display environmental and flood concerns for any location within the US, in just a matter of minutes. Watch for some big announcements to come, including the addition of crime information in our Location Risk Analysis.
I invite you to read more about Mr. Dangermond and Esri in this wonderful article, published in the February 29, 2016 issue of Forbes, “The Godfather of Digital Maps”.
