GIS Hydro 2013: The Water Resources Workshop Agenda is here!

by Steve Kopp and Caitlin Scopel, Esri

For all the hydro folks coming to San Diego for this year’s International User Conference, please join us on Sunday before the conference (July 7, 2013) for a free all day meeting showcasing the latest happenings in Esri’s world of water resources.

The focus of this year’s meeting is Water on the Web. The morning sessions will present improvements in ArcGIS 10.2 (including tighter integration between Desktop and Online), and some exciting new data and analytic services – showcased as a series of demonstration scenarios. This will be led by Dr. David Maidment from the University of Texas, with support from the Esri Hydro Team, University of Texas staff, and Kisters. Highlights include mapping and management of global sensor observation data, exploration and integration of soil moisture data, investigating historic water usage and water rights, and applying these capabilities to hydrologic modeling.

After a lunch of fish tacos and sunshine, we’ll head back inside for an update on Arc Hydro from Dr. Dean Djokic of Esri. Then, Dr. Norm Jones of BYU\Aquaveo will provide an update of Arc Hydro Groundwater, showcasing demonstrations of Arc Hydro Groundwater products created through collaborations with Esri and Kisters.

We will end the day with a couple of great presentations from Esri customers; Horizons Regional Council from New Zealand and the Grand River Conservation Authority from Canada.

The meeting will run from 8:30am – 5:00pm in room 29 of the San Diego Convention Center. There is no charge for the meeting but you will need to be registered for the main Esri International User Conference in order to get in the building.  If you plan to attend, please follow this link to register.

Show up early and enjoy catching up with old friends over a continental breakfast provided by Kisters, or stay late and join us for a no-host dinner of tapas and sangria at Sevilla following the workshop.

We look forward to seeing you there!

    I’m unable to attend the conference, but would love to be able to access the content from this free workshop! Any chance this can be made available in some format?
