Strategic and Technical Relationships
Farallon enjoys excellent strategic and technical relationships with leading commercial GIS software and IT vendors. Our relationships with Oracle (Oracle Spatial / XE), Google (Google Earth / Google Maps), Microsoft (Bing Maps / Virtual Earth), Intergraph, GeoCortex and Safe Software are particularly strong.
Oracle recognizes Farallon as a skilled and proven GIS system integrator in the United States with the technical expertise necessary to evaluate and test the GIS capabilities of its flagship 8i, 9i, and 10g database products. Farallon plays a critical role in providing Oracle with requirements for Oracle Spatial, to support our real-world GIS customers with large (multi-gigabyte) geospatial datasets.
