Join us for a FREE webinar: ArcGIS Online and the Living Atlas

The Living Atlas is a curated subset of ArcGIS Online content. It’s comprised of authoritative content in the form of maps, map layers, and analytic models on thousands of topics from Imagery to Demographics and Landscapes to Urban Systems. Every item in the Living Atlas is ready-to-use, which means it’s displaying clean, authoritative data with high quality cartography and documentation, making the data easy to find, easy to understand and easy to use in your GIS workflows.

Join us on Wednesday, January 14th at 11am PST as we tour the Living Atlas, highlighting content with Hydrology and Water Resources applications. See how the Living Atlas is organized, how it integrates with different parts of the ArcGIS platform, and how you can take advantage of it in your own workflows. This webinar is part of a series of Water Resources webinars which will take place throughout 2015.

To attend the webinar, you must REGISTER HERE.
