Many know of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) as one of the world’s most well-respected Earth science scholarly organizations. Its annual fall meeting usually dwarfs the Esri UC by well over 10,000 attendees. Last year’s event attracted 25,482 attendees from more than 100 countries, maintaining its status as the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world. This year’s conference (#AGU22), December 12-16, 2022, will feature a hybrid experience over the course of just one week, with both in-person and virtual presentations in oral and poster sessions, in-person and virtual eLightning sessions, and an in-person exhibitor showcase.
Esri is once again a PREMIUM-level exhibitor with an on-site booth presence (#1927 across from NASA) under the theme of Next Generation Science Entails WHERE. The 3-main topic pillars/stations at the booth will be Open Science, Climate Change Sustainable Future, and Research & Education. There will be a bevy of rich content, messaging and demos under these topics, including on multidimensional scientific data and analysis, imagery, big data geoanalytics, raster analytics, data publishing and no-code apps, The Living Atlas of the World, ArcGIS Pro, R and Python integration, ArcGIS Notebooks, ArcGIS Hubs for open data platforms, ArcGIS StoryMaps, Learn ArcGIS, MOOCs, World [Terrestrial] Ecosystems (aka Ecological Land Units), Ecological Marine Units, Ecological Coastal Units, the entire web GIS pattern, our commitment to open/interoperable, and more.
Throughout the entire conference, Esri will have booth staff available each day should any AGU attendee have questions, wish to speak with Esri experts, or view a number of live science demos. Free books, the famous “Globie” Esri stressballs, and other giveaways will be part of the action too. In addition, a variety of science books from Esri Press will be available to AGU attendees at a significant discount.
Many thanks to Esri Earth Sciences Solution Director Lorraine Tighe for coordinating the participation of 17 booth staff in this important scientific conference.

Beyond the booth, Esri will also be represented at six Town Hall meetings:
- TH005 – AGU LANDInG (Leadership Academy and Network for Diversity & Inclusion in Geosciences): Progress Highlights and How to Participate
- TH008 – Diversity and Inclusion in the Earth and Space Sciences: Candid Discussion with the AGU Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Committee
- TH15F – Climate Ready Nation
- TH23I – EarthCube Town Hall: Evolution of the Geosciences/Cyberinfrastructure Community
- TH35F – Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity in Informatics
- TH35H – NASA SMD Open-Source Science Initiative
We are also pleased to share the lineup of presentations that will be made by Esri staff at the 2022 AGU Fall Meeting in a hybrid mode (either in-person or remote). AGU is striving to make as much content on-demand for virtual attendees with pre-recorded oral presentations and virtual posters available for attendees to view even outside the scheduled live, in-person sessions during the meeting.
You’ll see in the list below of scientific papers, posters, and entire sessions that Esri is leading or contributing on a wide variety of interesting and important projects. Many of these are in collaboration with our federal partners at NASA, NOAA, US Forest Service, Department of Energy, EPA, and the USGS, as well as several universities and national laboratories. This showcases how Esri not only enables great understanding of the world with our products and services, but also performs good science, and contributes well as a member of the scientific community, sharing and inspiring others as to The Science of Where.
