Esri has acquired technology from ClearTerra. The acquisition is expected to provide ArcGIS platform users the ability to  discover and extract geographic coordinates from unstructured textual data like emails, briefings, and reports, instantly generating intelligent map-based information, said the company in a statement.

ClearTerra has been an active member of the Esri partner program, providing their software to ArcGIS users via desktop, server, and the cloud. Support and maintenance for the software will continue via Esri with no interruption of service and is readily available for licensing.
