AutoDesk/Google Bundle for Government Users

adsk_logo.gifBoth Adena and Jason hit the big points about this bundle release, but I thought I’d chime in. From the press release:

“Incorporating Google Earth Pro into our Autodesk Government Geospatial Solution creates a complete workflow for government agencies,” said Dave Rhodes, vice president of Autodesk Government. “The powerful combination enables professional GIS staff to more easily share complex, precision data with a wide audience of non-technical colleagues and partners that need to leverage that data in a variety of geospatially-enabled business projects.”

Kinda sounds like Autodesk is answering ArcGIS 9.2 (specifically ArcGIS Server and ArcGIS Explorer) and at a cheaper price. I wonder how long until this bundle is available for non-governmental organizations.

Oh and check out that press release, Autodesk has been working on the Web 2.0 lingo.
