On Tuesday, July 21, 2015, more than 300 GIS professionals came together in San Diego, California for the 5th annual GIS Managers’ Open Summit. The GIS Managers’ Open Summit is an “unconference”-style event designed to help GIS managers, business and technology strategists, and other decision makers attending the Esri User Conference to engage in conversations with their peers on topics that relate to business efficiencies, ROI, GIS management strategies, and much more.

There are countless ways to enter the field of GIS and, with a bit of imagination and creativity, even more ways to use the technology.
This notion of limitless possibilities was the overarching theme of a series of events put on by the Young Professionals Network (YPN) at the 2015 Esri User Conference in San Diego, California.
