December 12, 2013 Beaverton, Oregon: E-on software is pleased to announce that Esri, the world's leading GIS company, has incorporated a new Plant Factory™ tree and shrub library as part of its recently announced CityEngine 2013 solution.

In addition, this plant library is fully compatible with e-on's LumenRT GeoDesign Immersive Visualization solution which allows Esri CityEngine users to transform their models into high-fidelity, interactive LiveCubes™, videos, and images.
"We are extremely excited about Esri's adoption of our Plant Factory™ as part of CityEngine 2013," said Nicholas Phelps, CEO of e-on software.

We look forward to working with Esri to continue to build innovative and compelling GeoDesign solutions."
The CityEngine 2013 3D Plant Library
The CityEngine 2013 plant library contains over 80 species of trees, shrubs, and flowers and is available in full 3D and 2-1/2D fan-style formats. The library works directly with any CityEngine rule base to create tree-lined streets, parks, and forests directly inside a CityEngine scene.
