ESRI and Microsoft to provide disaster maps and apps
Esri recently announced a strategic alliance with Microsoft to assist public and private agencies and communities around the world during disasters.
Microsoft will display Esri public information maps on its cloud-based Disaster Response Incident Portal, as well as point citizens to the maps via its online outlets, such as MSN and Bing. Esri's ArcGIS integration within a number of Microsoft's disaster response management solutions will provide governments and leading aid organisations with a more comprehensive set of tools to address key challenges.
