ESRI withdraws from WMS Shootout
Sydney, Australia. 17 October 2009. http://2009.foss4g.org
ESRI has informed the organizers of the FOSS4G their inability to continue participating in the WMS shootout event because of other priority obligations that have emerged and resource availability constraints. ESRI has informed us that they will nevertheless continue their participation in the Climate Challenge Integration Plugfest event at the conference. While we would have liked to have seen ESRI's participation in the event, we understand their commitment to their users and appreciate their efforts to date. We look forward to seeing them at FOSS4G in the weeks ahead.
