CONCORD, MA, January 16, 2006 --/WORLD-WIRE/--
EarthSoft announced today that Louisiana DEQ has accepted a donation of over $450,000 of EQuIS 5 and EQuIS for ArcGIS systems.

In a letter from Louisiana DEQ Secretary Mike McDaniel, Dr. McDaniel said, “This software will provide DEQ the tools needed to manage environmental data.” Mike Stewart, Principal of eDATApro in Baton Rouge, said, “We are pleased to begin work implementing EQuIS for DEQ and will provide training and consulting to most effectively integrate EQuIS into DEQ processes and workflow.”
