The Esri UC: Where Innovation and Application Meet

By Guest Blogger Drew, 2013 Student Assistant

Pop quiz, GIS students: do you recall Waldo Tobler’s first rule of geography? It goes something like “All things are related, but those that are closer together are more related.” Today’s geographers are used to being near one another via emails and online user groups, a far cry from the nearness that Tobler described. However, the annual Esri International User Conference brings 13,000 GIS users together under one roof for a week. The experience is a real eye-opener for anyone who thinks that digital interfacing is even remotely similar to geographic nearness. This is what the Esri UC does best—it whips up a GIS user “cocktail,” consisting of planners, tech- nicians, developers, engineers, and many others. Esri serves up this grand event year after year, making sure the exper- ience is a collaborative one between employees and users.

A New “Face” on the Esri Careers Blog

Meet Maura, who will be a regular contributor to the blog this summer. Stay tuned for her posts on student programs, events for Esri interns, adventures around town and beyond, and much more.

Upon deciding to pursue a Geographical Studies undergraduate major, I began the prerequisite courses, one of which was a class on basic GIS. On my campus at the University of Chicago, few outside the Geographical Studies department have heard the terms “GIS” and “Esri.” However, after explaining to my peers what the software is, many claim some sort of knowledge, whether they used it at a previous internship or are familiar with its use in news articles, etc.

The class I took was also my first introduction to GIS. Although I am not tech savvy, I was greatly intrigued by the variety of uses for GIS in a multitude of fields. The study of geography is similar in this way: although united by one field, there are so many uses and paths one can follow in the exploration of geography and GIS that they are impossible to list. Thus, with a new interest in GIS and its uses in the everyday world, I jumped at the chance to intern at Esri.
