Austria, Bulgaria, Caribbean, Mexico—Esri T-Shirts Shine!

Julie Young

Julie Young, manager of the Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Informatics Center at University of California, Davis, stands atop Mt. Vichren, Bulgaria's second highest peak. As part of an inaugural contingent of visitors helping to evaluate a budding ecotourism partnership between Bulgarian and American companies, Julie hiked the wilds of three Bulgarian mountain ranges, among one of the most beautiful and brilliant displays of fall color her guides could remember. No, the guides weren't talking about the colors in her Esri T-shirt!

Vicki Hynes, GIS coordinator, city of West Chicago, had her picture snapped while on her honeymoon cruise to the southern Caribbean. The port of Willemstad on the island of St. Maarten can be seen in the background. It's a good thing she remembered to pack her Esri T-shirt! The island was beautiful, she says, and they had no problems with any hurricanes.





Check out more Esri T-Shirt pictures in the new expanded section below.

Steven Hick, GIS director, University of Denver, Colorado, is "monkeying" around in a fig tree on the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula, Mexico. We know that people enjoy Esri T-shirts, but Steve has developed it into an art!

Michael Gaigg (left) and Bernhard Zagel, wildly enthusiastic GIS students and interns at the time this picture was snapped, seem to be surfing the wild blue yonder but, on closer examination, we can see that they are standing atop the battlement walls of the Hohensalzburg Fortress in Salzburg, Austria. The fortress was built in 1077 and remodeled in 1465 and 1519. Good thing they wore their Esri T-shirts to break their fall!

In 2001, W. (Brian) Boulmay, now GIS consultant, Shell International Exploration and Production, Inc., visited Big Bend National Park in Texas on an EarthWatch trip. He was collecting insects and surveying vegetation to be entered into an ArcView database for analysis. While hiking, Brian stopped to admire the formation called "the window." Realizing he was wearing an Esri T-shirt, inspiration hit, and you see the result!

Robert G. Graham, GIS support/data management, SchlumbergerSema, Greenwood Village, Colorado, recently went to Honduras on a mission trip to repair schools after Hurricane Mitch inundated that country. Going through his photos, he noticed that he was wearing his ArcInfo T-shirt. In the photo he is standing in a crowd of children trying to get a good signal on his GPS. He can't fool us-even money he knew he was wearing that T-shirt all along!
