An open standard proposal by mapping giant Esri has failed after a backlash from open source developers within the geospatial community led it to withdraw from the process. Esri, with around 30 percent market share in geographic information systems, has over 1 million users and 350,000 customers, most of whom use its ArcGIS software.
