Esri AgTech is Big at InfoAg 2016

By: Charlie Magruder, Esri Agriculture Group

Advancements in agriculture technology will be a hot topic at InfoAg August 2–4, 2016, in St. Louis, Missouri. This year InfoAg sponsor Esri will showcase its AgTech Program, which offers the latest geospatial tools for agribusiness.

Stop by booths #79–82 and see many ways the Esri ArcGIS platform could help you map, visualize, and share data, such as monitoring crop health, managing farm and field, and tracking assets. People who build technology solutions are also welcome to come and explore Esri tools that can differentiate solutions and shorten development cycles. Esri’s open platform has powerful and flexible APIs, data, and ready-to-use templates that help you build intelligent apps quickly.

Throughout the conference, Esri partners will be at the booth to share important information such as drone data analysis, runoff management ideas, and real-time weather analytics.

InfoAg HackerLab

Esri will host a HackerLab on Thursday, August 4, immediately following InfoAg, for developers looking to really dig in and get their hands on some code. This free interactive lab will walk participants step-by-step through exercises to create map apps. Any and all developers are welcome to register.
