Share Your Work for the Plenary

As the Esri User Conference fast approaches, I need your help to put the finishing touches on my plenary session slides. They’re fantastic, but from my discussions with many of you about your fabulous work, I get the sense there’s even more stunning maps and photographs out there yet to be shared. I want to promote your work in my opening address on the giant screen in the San Diego Convention Center.

Highlighting your work is almost sacred to me because it shows you’re actualizing The Science of Where. Screenshots of maps and apps that change organizations motivate me. Your work also lights a fire under the Esri community to replicate what you’ve created, apply it in different ways, and even scale it up into something bigger.

In that spirit, I invite you to submit up to three images or videos by June 6 for us to consider including in the presentation. You can upload your work using the new image submission website. We’re particularly interested in images, maps, or screenshots on the following topics:

  • Maps that help with decision making
  • Maps that support situational awareness
  • Maps that support collaboration
  • Maps that help understand a complex situation
  • Maps that tell a story—story maps
  • Maps that demonstrate the use of spatial analysis, modeling, and science
  • Real-time maps and operational dashboards
  • High-quality basemaps and cartographic displays
  • Maps that show the use of imagery analytics
  • 3D maps and visualization
  • Images that depict the use of portals, web maps, and apps
  • Screenshots, diagrams, or photos illustrating the people working with GIS, including in the field

Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far. To everyone else who intends to upload images and videos, thank you in advance.
