Ever wondered what makes a map great or how you can make yours better? Want to know how your cartographic skills stack up against your peers? Stop by the Map Critique Station at the Tech Support Island in the Esri Showcase to meet one-on-one with Esri’s professional cartographers and find out for yourself.
The Esri UC is packed with opportunities to learn about advances in technology, amazing new GIS applications, and the latest initiatives that will transform how GIS is used to make a difference. With so many interesting topics on the agenda, you may find it challenging to attend all the sessions that are calling your name. At the Training and Certification island, you can talk with our training team about instructor-led and self-paced learning options, training plans to help your projects go smoothly, and strategic staff development plans that support long-term GIS program success.
The Esri UC isn’t just a great place to get help and learn how to make the most of your GIS software. It’s also a breeding ground for innovative ideas and applications that redefine what’s possible with geospatial technology. At the Esri Labs booth, you can pick the brains of our technologists from Arlington, Beijing, Melbourne, Ottawa, Portland, Zurich, and Redlands and get a glimpse at some of the mind-blowing projects they’re working on.
With so much to see and experience, the UC can be a lot to process. It can be tough to find that certain developer or organization you’re looking for amidst the 15,000 attendees and more than 300 exhibitors. Luckily, the folks at the ArcGIS Product Info Center are there to help.
