ESRI and Trimble have joined fores and launched the 2009 Mobile Government Grant Program. The joint grant program awards hardware, software, and training with a value of $89,980 to 20 state and local government agencies in the United States.
More importantly however, the Grant Program is a vehicle for Government agencies to share their business processes, workflows, and custom software development with other Government agencies that have similar needs for field data capture and analysis.
This grant applies to the use of both ESRI’s ArcGIS Mobile and ArcPad software coupled with Trimble device offerings.
