Jack Dangermond
President, Esri

The Science of Where is a new way of describing the collective work done by Esri and the GIS community. The phrase is designed to capture and communicate, in a few words, the applications of geographic science using GIS technology. It's about applying a data-driven approach that uses geography to unlock greater understanding. Effectively, The Science of Where distills what we do and why we do it.
