Are you one of those people who constantly tinkers with apps? Do you find yourself regularly looking at the source code behind your favorite webpages? At the 2013 UC, we’ve organized an entire set of sessions, resources, and events just for you and other developers like you. Here are just a few of the highlights you’ll want to check out.
The 2013 UC agenda search and planner is now live! You can use our agenda app to find the sessions, workshops, and presentations that most interest you and start building a schedule for your week in San Diego. And if you haven’t registered for UC yet, showing your superiors your planned session load is a great way to help you justify your trip. The agenda search and planner also integrates with Outlook or iCal, so you can easily synch your schedule with your mobile device and stay on-track during UC.
Two weeks ago, our agenda thieves brought you a preview of upcoming technical workshops at Esri UC. This week, they’re spilling the beans on some of the moderated paper sessions and specific presentations you can expect.
Our agenda thieves are at it again to bring you a preview of the latest technical workshops.
Even we were amazed by the overwhelming number of you that registered for Esri UC within minutes of the webpages going live last month. As we were en route to our best opening day in the history of UC, Jeff Dickey of Salt Lake City, Utah, managed to sneak in before anyone else. In what has now become an Esri UC tradition, we took some time to speak with Jeff about all things UC and to find out how he is GIS.
Esri: Congrats and thank you for being the first person to register for the 2013 Esri UC. You’re listed as the GIS Manager for Barrick Gold. Can you tell us more about that?
Jeff Dickey: I’ve been with Barrick for two years and I’m the GIS Manager of the North American Regional Land Department. We use GIS to manage all of our cadastral records. We hold title to over 30,000 unpatented mining claims, in addition to thousands of acres of surface and mineral holdings.
At 440,000 total square feet, the GIS Solutions EXPO is truly a sight to behold. Almost all of us can vividly recall our first encounter with the sprawling showcase that features more than 300 geospatial exhibitors interspersed with technical islands and demo theaters staffed by Esri’s experts.
We are thrilled to announce that event and hotel registration are now open for the 2013 Esri International User Conference. We opened registration even earlier this year to give you extra time to start planning and budgeting for your geospatial odyssey to San Diego.
We’re thrilled to announce that the 2012 UC agenda search and planner is now available. In addition to exploring the more than 900-plus sessions in the agenda, you can also use the planner to start building your schedule for the week. Not only can this help you get to all of the presentations that matter most to you, but it’s also a great tool for justifying your trip to San Diego. Once you’ve built your schedule, you can export it to Outlook or iCal so you can synch it with your mobile device.
While we hope you spend time delving into the full breadth of the agenda, here are a few of the topics that are generating buzz throughout the GIS community: Continue reading
Map, chart, and data production organizations currently face a daunting task. In the face of deep cuts in staffing levels and seeing their budgets slashed by as much as fifty percent, these organizations are being asked to maintain or even increase the production of mission-critical map and information products.
You’re not alone. Join our map, chart, and data production team at the Esri UC and explore how new tools and workflows can help you meet greater demands despite having fewer resources. From SDI and imagery to cartography and national mapping, you’ll find the information and help you need to meet your goals. Mark Cygan, Esri’s map, chart, and data production industry manager, previews what we have in-store at this year’s UC.
The move to digital sensors from more traditional scanned aerial imagery has had a profound impact on the way GIS professionals use remotely sensed data. The volume, speed, and clarity of imagery that digital cameras collect opens up image processing possibilities and analyses that are much more accurate. At ArcGIS 10.1, the ability to manage and produce imagery on-the-fly is changing the traditional input-output model to a transactional model that speeds the production of imagery products.
