Freedom Consulting Group Receives the 2010 Federal Business Partner of the Year Award From ESRI

COLUMBIA, MD--(Marketwire - April 15, 2010) - The Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI®) recently recognized Freedom Consulting Group (FCG) with their 2010 Federal Business Partner of the Year Award for outstanding achievements in the areas of sales, ingenuity, creativity, and contributions to technological development.

FCG has been instrumental in making ESRI technology -- in particular, ESRI's Image Server -- the standard for the management and distribution of imagery data in the Department of Defense. FCG worked closely with the ESRI product development team over a two-year period to improve the Image Server product, making it viable for enterprise use and large amounts of imagery. FCG shared the results with the intelligence community, through demonstrations and presentations, to create many sales opportunities for ESRI. FCG has also mastered several other challenging implementations of ESRI technology, including the GeoPortal extension, and created fast map services in secure environments. FCG has excelled in advocating ESRI across the DoD. Learn more at
