Imagery Summit
@ Esri UC

Marriott Marquis & Marina | San Diego, CA

July 8 - 10, 2018

Modernizing Remote Sensing to Unlock the Potential in Every Pixel and Post.

Innovate with a Modern GIS

With an emphasis on recent, significant developments in remote sensing in ArcGIS, the theme of the 2018 Imagery Summit @ Esri UC, formerly the Esri Imaging and Mapping Forum (IMF), is: “Modernizing Remote Sensing to Unlock the Potential in Every Pixel and Post.”

At this unique summit, you’ll get a detailed look at new imagery and remotely sensed data processing and analytical techniques in ArcGIS. You will discover how you can use ArcGIS as a multidimensional GIS to open a frontier of possibilities for creating an array of earth observation applications. Learn how to tell meaningful stories in 3D using enhanced imagery visualization and mensuration tools, artificial intelligence classification techniques, advanced raster analytics, and satellite, aerial, and drone imagery sensor data.
