Last year the Esri water team spent a lot more time with rural and small water systems than in the past. We did this because Esri software has changed a lot. It’s become easier to use. It includes simple solutions for small utilities to get started mapping. And, it’s more affordable. The Esri water team joined rural water associations, attended and exhibited at conferences, and met with many organizations. I really enjoyed meeting so many amazing people and sharing success stories. It was a great year!
Looking Forward to 2019
In 2019 we plan to do even more. The water team will be participating in many events (see list below). We will be sharing information about ArcGIS Online, the Geospatial Cloud, field applications, and more. I’ll be working with many of you (I hope) to share your successes. I’m looking forward to learning about your achievements!
GIS and GPS Working Together
Something new this year . . . we will be teaming with Eos Positioning Systems. If you are interested in pairing GIS with GPS, now is the time. The Arrow Series receivers pair seamlessly with Collector for ArcGIS, making it quick and easy to get started mapping your system with high accuracy.
Don’t be shy! Learn how ArcGIS can get you started mapping your system with mobile apps. Then, bring your questions to Esri and Eos at any of the events below. We are here to help!
