Anaconda announces collaboration with Esri, setting the enterprise standard for Python in the geospatial community


Anaconda Inc.provider of the famous data science platform, announced a collaboration with Esri, the global market leader in geographic information system (GIS), geolocation and mapping software. This collaboration supports Esri and the geospatial community by providing users of Esri’s software with preloaded geospatial packages for use with Python.

“Esri has been a long-time customer, and we’re thrilled to partner with them to deliver world-class Python integration to our joint users,” said Peter Wang, CEO and co-founder of Anaconda. “Geospatial analysts and data scientists can perform powerful new analyzes using the rich ecosystem of tools in the Anaconda Package Repository while staying within their familiar ArcGIS environment. I’m excited to better serve this vast community of users which encompasses government agencies, health and services, transportation, education, etc.

After the launch by Anaconda of their Integrated Partnership Program in November and the announcement of their partnership with Snowflake, this collaboration enables Anaconda to expand its footprint in location-based analytics and become the standard tool for enterprise Python.

“By having a bespoke environment, users will be able to perform data analysis with Python while having a format that data scientists are familiar with and catering to a wide variety of users in the geospatial community,” said David Watkins, ArcGIS Pro Product Manager. from Esri. “Through this collaboration, we are able to provide access to Anaconda and our geospatial packages directly to our customers.”

By integrating essential packages and a custom Python environment from Anaconda’s conda package repository, ArcGIS gives users access to cutting-edge geospatial, scientific, and machine learning tools, while adhering to compliance protocols and best practices for securing open source in sensitive and critical areas. environments. Standardizing with Anaconda allows teams to collaborate more seamlessly and speeds time to insight. Together, Anaconda and Esri bring Python to geospatial users in markets including commercial, utility, architectural engineering, and construction; further fueling innovation in the industry, from ensuring ports are run efficiently to providing quality customer service.
