We met up with Mike Dana, business development manager at Wacom Technology at the 2010 Esri User conference and Mike gave us a close-up look at Wacom’s DTU-2231 interactive pen display. A little about the device… As the first HD interactive pen display for the GIS industry, the DTU-2231’s direct pen-on-screen capability perfectly complements ArcGIS 10 data creation, analysis and review capabilities. With the DTU-2231, users employ Wacom’s patented battery-free pen to work, draw and navigate directly on the surface of the pen display’s 21.5-inch HD LCD.
Touted as the perfect tool for those interested in the discipline of GeoDesign, Wacom took part in a special event on Thursday at the ESRIUC that was entgirely focused on GeoDesign – a passion of Jack Dangermond!
“Sketching is the language of GeoDesign,” says Jack Dangermond, Esri president. “Interactive displays like those from Wacom bring sketching capabilities to more GIS professionals and act as an enabling technology for GeoDesign.”
