The 2019 Esri User Conference is just around the corner and the ArcGIS Hub team is excited to meet you there. We will be hosting a variety of sessions, a Special Interest Group (SIG) Meeting, as well as open hours in the UC Expo where you can meet with us to get all your questions answered.
Stop by the ArcGIS Hub Area to:
- Learn how to use a “hub” initiative-based approach to take your open data further by connecting it directly to community priorities.
- See how to setup hub websites, initiatives, apps, and events.
- Discover ways of partnering with residents, non-profits, business, and universities.
We created the flier below to help you find your way to the ArcGIS Hub, open data, and community engagement focused sessions at UC.
Here are a few of the sessions (including a special ArcGIS Hub customer success story featured in the plenary session) that you won’t want to miss:
User Conference Plenary Session – Part II

City of Zwolle, Netherlands
Climate Adaptability and Involving Citizens with ArcGIS Hub
The City of Zwolle, Netherlands, recognizes that they will likely face challenges resulting from climate change, and they are undertaking efforts to improve their ability to adapt to changes as they occur. In order to understand those changes, they must first be able to monitor them, and so the city established a sensor network to track weather and air quality, connecting this sensor network to the ArcGIS platform. To gain support from citizens, the city is using ArcGIS Hub to publicize and provide information about the project, leading to greater citizen involvement. Learn how citizens in Zwolle are developing their own inexpensive groundwater monitoring devices, connecting this all to the Hub.
