PR – ITT Visual Information Solutions, a business of ITT Corporation (NYSE: ITT),
announced the newest release of its premier geospatial image processing and

by providing users with the ability to share data seamlessly between ENVI and
ESRIs ArcGIS, the world’s leading GIS software.


Traditionally considered a backdrop to GIS, imagery
is now being used by professionals in a variety of industries to acquire

ENVI and ArcGIS now allows users to take advantage of ENVIs high performance image processing capabilities as a part of

"Working with a proven leader like ITT Visual Information Solutions is an
excellent solution to extend our users’ imagery capability," said Jack
Dangermond, ESRI’s president. "ITT’s ability to take advantage of ESRI’s already
interoperable platform to provide GIS users with its powerful image processing
tools will greatly enhance users experience in working
with imagery in a GIS context. The collaboration between ITT VIS and ESRI to
bring this capability to users across a wide variety of industries and
disciplines is an excellent example of Geography in Action.

ENVI 4.5 provides the ability to export any ENVI activity including processed
imagery, vector, classification or extraction results to the geodatabase for
ready use in GIS workflows. ENVI 4.5 supports enterprise, file and personal
geodatabase types. This new capability gives users of both products increased
workflow efficiencies and time savings when integrating imagery with GIS

In addition, ENVI 4.5 provides direct access to the full suite of map
composition tools available in ESRIs ArcGIS Desktop.
This allows users to complete image processing and analysis functions in ENVI
and then launch the ArcMap application of ArcGIS Desktop from within ENVI to
generate reports and map compositions.
