Leica Geosystems’ Geospatial Imaging unit (Leica) has acquired Australian geospatial software house ER Mapper for an undisclosed amount. ER Mapper sells geospatial image processing solutions, in particular, a high performance Image Web Server (IWS) for the management of very large image datasets.
Leica president Bob Morris said, ‘The ER Mapper acquisition brings leading enterprise technology to our portfolio of solutions, supporting our strategy of providing geospatial information to larger, enterprise-wide markets. We are also gaining market access to industries like mineral and oil and gas exploration, complementing our own natural resources expertise.’
Last year (OITJ June 06) Shell rolled out a bespoke ER Mapper-based solution to expose its twelve terabyte satellite imagery archive. In another deployment, Anadarko showed how ER Mapper could be used alongside VoxelGeo and StratiMagic for innovative seismic geomorphological investigations (The Data Room, Technology Watch AAPG 2005).
