ArcGIS Vision and Direction
Scott Morehouse and team will provide their thoughts on the ArcGIS Platform, both what it is as well as ideas on the direction as influenced by technology trends. This session will be a series of talks by the leads for different areas of ArcGIS.
Expanding the Use of GIS
Esri builds many solutions that enable users to leverage the ArcGIS platform tailored to particular uses. These solutions are part of a larger initiative to make GIS less about points, lines, and polygons, and more about real-world apps and tools. This session will discuss the trends and specifics of what we are building and how you can benefit from these tools and thinking
The Power of Maps
ArcGIS provides the engine to power all kinds of maps. Virtually any capability that you create with GIS – from simple to advanced – can be brought to life using maps. That has always been the promise – and the appeal – of GIS.
We will present a series of live map examples and techniques that you'll be able to learn about and leverage in your own work. We'll explore great online map examples and describe how they can be implemented in the new ArcGIS. We'll talk about how new interactive online web maps can be used as information products to communicate and inform others. We'll introduce useful map patterns that you can apply to your most sophisticated work for your basic novice users and for your most advanced GIS experts.
We think this presentation will provide critically important ideas that you can incorporate into your own GIS work and will provide a valuable perspective for making a difference with GIS.
