Kent Peña, GIS coordinator for the United States Department of Agriculture—Natural Resources Conservation Service in Wisconsin, is shown here in the Panama Canal en route from Ensenada, Mexico, to Martinique delivering the Bajavento, a 49-foot Jeanneau race cruiser. Due to some inclement weather (winds exceeding 50 knots!) off the coast of Colombia that delayed him, Kent unfortunately had to bail out in Aruba. Fortunately, he took along his Esri T-shirt.

An eight-day visit to Peru brought them to Cuzco; the Sacred Valley; the ancient Incan ruins of Machu Picchu; and, finally, the Amazon Rainforest. They traveled up the Tambopata River to get to their jungle lodge, Wasai Tambopata Lodge, where they proudly posed with their Esri T-shirts.

Tito Vandermeyden, GIS engineer, Nextbus Inc., Alameda, California, wore his Esri T-shirt while visiting the Angkor Temple Complex in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Angkor is one of the most important archaeological sites in Southeast Asia and a United Nations World Heritage site. Stretching over approximately 400 square kilometers, including forested area, Angkor Archaeological Park contains the magnificent remains of the different capitals of the Khmer empire, from the 9th to the 15th century. These include the famous temple of Angkor Wat and, at Angkor Thom, the Bayon temple with its countless sculptural decorations.

While skiing at La Parva, Chile, in 2005, he tracked the ski runs with his GPS device. Spring conditions were perfect weather for posing with his Esri T-shirt.
Pedro Guimarñes
Pedro Guimarñes works in the Department of GIS for the City of Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal. When visiting Mauritania in northwestern Africa to see the 2006 Lisbon-Dakar off-road rally (December 31, 2005, to January 15, 2006), he stopped long enough to have this photo taken near the city of Atar. The nice landscape of yellow sand dunes makes a great backdrop for his Esri T-shirt.
