ArcGIS Hub at the 2022 Esri User Conference

The 2022 Esri User Conference is just around the corner and the ArcGIS Hub​ team is excited and ready to meet you there. We will be hosting a variety of sessions, as well as open hours in the Esri UC Expo where you can meet with us to get all your questions answered. Below you’ll find a list of recommended ArcGIS Hub focused in-person and hybrid sessions and activities. (Fun fact: a “hybrid” session means the session will be held live in-person and it will also be livestreamed and recorded for on demand playback later on) .

These technical workshops, demo theater presentations, and resources will help you dive into many aspects of ArcGIS Hub, open data, community engagement, Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI), ArcGIS Enterprise Sites, and more. And don’t forget the Plenary on Monday (you might see some interesting ArcGIS Hub examples shared there as well)!

If you haven’t registered yet, check out your registration options here.  And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter for the latest updates and news about ArcGIS Hub.

Open Data Catalogs and Federation: An Overview (In-Person)

Tuesday, July 12 | 4:00 p.m. – 4:20 p.m. | SDCC – Expo – Open Platform: Standards & Interoperability Spotlight Theater

Geospatial catalogs are an important aspect of making relevant data findable and accessible for use. In heterogeneous environments, metadata and catalog standards play a major role to make this process interoperable. Federated catalogs allow for mechanisms that either harvest metadata or in many cases the possibility to federate out the searches and return data of interest. This presentation will provide best practices using ArcGIS Online and Hub to leverage the power of the metadata and DCAT for catalog federation.
