Following a successful ESRI User Conference, Ed Delaney, Federal Sales Director of Contex Americas, reports:
"We are pleased to report that we exceeded our 2009 booth attendance at this year’s ESRI User Conference. The GIS mapping workshops were a huge success, and the interest in our XD2490 is hitting an all-time high, especially by our military customers who appreciate the lightweight and easily deployable scanner. We’re also fielding requests from State and Federal emergency operations including the Bureau of Land Management for fire command centers. As firefighters mark up maps in the field, officials at the on-site command centers can use Contex’s portable XD2490 wide format scanners to scan and distribute the updated maps to the Incident Commander. A portable, lightweight scanner/printer makes maintaining a real-time digital record of the modified maps simpler and faster. Distributing this valuable field information to the emergency responders on the ground can be instrumental for safety and aiding emergency relief efforts."
