Proceedings and videos of the 2014 Esri Ocean GIS Forum are available at:
In addition to the excellent papers, maps, apps, and lightning talks presented by over 100 users, the Forum featured:
- the exciting announcement of the integration of ArcGIS with SciPy, a Python-based ecosystem of open-source software for mathematics, science, and engineering
- the growing world of Ocean Content (Ocean and Arctic Ocean Basemap)
- demos of the latest Esri offerings in multi-dimensional visualization and analysis
- bring science into maritime operations, including Common Operating Picture templates for offshore energy, ports, and defense applications
The Forum also witnessed the start of the Ocean GIS GeoNet community. This is one great way that YOU can speak to us and to each other. Please feel free to join this community now.
