Esri Powers uKnow.com's Family Locator Service
Redlands-based Esri is continuing to make inroads into the Internet startup market, and has been tapped to power the family location services of uKnow.com. uKnow said today that it is partnering with Esri to use that company's geographical information systems technology in a new, family locator service called uKnowLocate. Esri has been working to supply its mapping technology to a wide range of startups, expanding its market beyond its core business in the government and large business market. Esri has been a longtime developer of sophisticated mapping systems, but until recently has mostly been used in enterprise applications. Details on the licensing deal with uKnow.com was not announced by the company.
