Preconference seminars for imagery

Preconference seminars focusing on the imagery and remote sensing capabilities of ArcGIS will take place the Saturday and Sunday before UC. There’s still time to register; either sign up when you register for the UC, or add seminars afterward by calling 1-888-377-4576 between 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (PST).

Image Analysis | Saturday, July 6, 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM

This hands-on seminar will help image analysts and scientists who want to know the best way to extract information from imagery. Best practices for image analysis using ArcGIS Pro and the ArcGIS Image Analyst extension as well as raster analytics via ArcGIS Image Server will be addressed.

Image Management and Dissemination | Saturday, July 6, 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM

This hands-on seminar will show imagery asset managers how to make imagery in their organization accessible for visualization and analysis. Best practices for image management and dissemination on premises and in the cloud will be explained.

Map Production from Imagery | Saturday, July 6, 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM

This hands-on seminar will assist users who want to create map products such as orthophotos, digital terrain models, and 3D models from imagery. Best practices for working with drone, aerial, and satellite imagery using orthophoto mapping will be presented.

Geospatial Deep Learning | Sunday, July 7, 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM

Nvidia and Esri are teaming up to bring a hands-on, geospatial-focused, deep learning preconference seminar. During this seminar you will learn how ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Enterprise can be combined with deep learning to automatically find and classify various objects in satellite imagery.

Imagery Summit @ Esri UC

The Imagery Summit @ Esri UC, taking place Sunday, July 7 – Tuesday, July 9, is dedicated to enabling this understanding within the framework of a modern GIS. The speed at which changes can be identified and authoritative 3D content can be created is being driven by an explosion of new sensors all tied to the internet of things. Discover how the ArcGIS Imagery Platform helps you harness this tsunami of geospatial information to drive success with your GIS. There’s still time to register.
