Invitation to participate in an Esri software Usability Study at the User Conference

The Esri Development Team invites you to participate in a moderated and recorded Usability Study of 3 specific areas of ArcGIS Pro: Geodatabase Management, specifically schema design and data modeling, Map Layout, and 3D Editing.

Who we’re looking for:

  • Existing ArcGIS for Desktop or current ArcGIS Pro users in the above mentioned areas
  • Users of Esri Solutions (Local Government, Water Utilities, Land Records, Defense, Forestry, Hydrology)
  • Users with varying degrees of experience who set up geodatabase schemas and model data, edit data, and design map layouts

In total, we’re looking for 30 testers.

How it works:

Our goal for this study is to assess the usability of the map layout, the 3D editing, and the schema design and data modeling functionalities of ArcGIS Pro; we want you to test our software, we’re not testing your ArcGIS skills.

To consider you as a usability tester, we require that you are registered and approved by your employer to attend the 2015 Esri User Conference and complete a pre-screening questionnaire—details below. Your time in the test lab is about 40 minutes.

Your test session will be recorded and observed by one or more members of the Development Team.

Click here to sign up.

We thank you in advance for your time and look forward to meeting you in San Diego.
