Making the World's Imagery Useful

Attend Imagery @ UC and discover how remotely sensed information is making an impact across all industries, enabling decision-makers to see the world, find the patterns, and share results with others. The Imagery @ UC experience includes learning about Esri solutions for enterprise imagery management, imagery and raster data included with ArcGIS Online, and advanced image processing and analysis. Meet with imagery experts at the Imagery Island on the expo floor who can answer your questions and demonstrate techniques to create valuable geospatial data products.

As a provider or consumer of imagery, you can make the most out of your Esri User Conference experience by attending Imagery @ UC. The variety of presentations, Esri technology demonstrations, moderated paper sessions and special interest groups will provide valuable insights for successful implementations using Esri technology for imagery.
