Plan Your Esri UC Activities to Include ArcGIS Hub Sessions

We’re excited to present two tech sessions this week:

ArcGIS Hub: An Introduction

Tuesday, July 13, 7:15 am to 8:15 am PDT
Organizations around the world are using ArcGIS Hub to engage communities, promote transparency, and collaborate across departments. During this session you will be introduced to ArcGIS Hub and how to get started with organizing internal staff and external collaborators to achieve your organization’s community engagement goals. We will cover some of the best examples across industries of how to leverage ArcGIS Hub sites, initiatives, teams, community identities, and feedback tools.

ArcGIS Hub: Managing and Collaborating with Your Community

Wednesday, July 14, 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm PDT
ArcGIS Hub helps organizations work more effectively with their communities. In this session, you will learn how to manage the content and apps community members can access, as well as how to control and leverage the ways in which community members can participate in initiatives. The use of ArcGIS Hub sharing controls, teams, sign-up configurations, community identities, and engagement tools will be highlighted.

Presenters: Marissa Defratti, Katelyn Thompson, Jay Dev


But we’re even more excited to tune into all the amazing user presentations that will be featuring ArcGIS Hub. There’s about a dozen that you can watch On Demand, anytime at your convenience. From COVID-19 response, to opioid awareness, to managing parks and fishing ponds, ArcGIS Hub is being used by governments large and small across the world to build awareness, increase transparency, and improve engagement in communities.
