About the Esri Oceans Summit
The Esri Oceans Summit is the first Esri-hosted event in Redlands dedicated to the oceans. This high-level strategy meeting will identify barriers to the use of GIS in ocean science and management, along with associated functional requirements. It will focus on removing those barriers via technical solutions in multidimensional and sensor data formats and in tools, workflows, and computing platforms. It will also address issues of accuracy and uncertainty.
