Iceland, Ireland, France, Kenya, Singapore, and Arizona--Around the World with Seven Esri T-Shirts!

Chris Dunlop

Chris Dunlop, a GIS analyst with Mason, Bruce & Girard, Inc., a natural resource consulting firm and Esri Business Partner based in Portland, Oregon, made a point of wearing his Esri T-shirt while inspecting a termite hill in Turkana in northwest Kenya. He and his wife are on a year's leave of absence teaching with Christian Missionary Fellowship.
  Mary Hagerman

Mary Hagerman, a GIS specialist for Dakota County, Minnesota, poses with the Kitt Peak National Observatory, Arizona, in the background. She was on vacation with her husband when they decided to visit the peak, which rises out of the Arizona desert to approximately 7,000 feet. She says, "The view from up here is astronomical!" We're glad she wore her Esri T-shirt on this outing.

Tom and Karen Zeisler

Tom Zeisler, the data resources supervisor, and Karen Zeisler, a GIS specialist, both for the St. Louis County Land Department, Duluth, Minnesota, are excited about wearing their Esri T-shirts in front of the Guinness Brewery in Dublin, Ireland. The reason they were there is that Karen ran the Adidas Dublin City Marathon on October 29, 2001, for the Joints in Motion Team for the Arthritis Foundation. Tom was around at the beginning when the User Conference was a group of people in one room and Laura Dangermond made potato salad for the group!

Lisbeth Ruiz-Nunez

Lisbeth Ruiz-Nunez, geographer/GIS specialist, USDA Forest Service, Engineering Unit, Southern Region, Atlanta, Georgia, says that ever since she saw the T-shirt column in ArcNews she started looking for the opportunity to have her picture taken. So naturally, in late 2000, she packed her T-shirt and went to Paris and stood atop the Arc de Triomphe with the Eiffel Tower in the distance. We call that dedication!
  Alberto Garcia

Alberto García, GIS developer of the Local Administration Department of SITESA in Madrid, Spain, decided to climb the highest mountain in Europe, Mont Blanc in the French Alps. The French sometimes call it "La Dame Blanche," or The White Lady. They say that on a clear day you can see forever. Fortunately for us, he packed his Esri T-shirt that day!

Nical Saliba

Nidal Saliba, senior GIS/RS specialist, InfoGraph, Amman, Jordan, just happened to wear his Esri T-shirt while visiting the tourist island of Sentosa in Singapore. In the background is the dragon that, according to legend, protects the island from invaders.
