Indonesia, the Netherlands, Brazil—Esri T-Shirts Around the Globe

Thomas Belfield, botanist for Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Hawaii, is shown here at the archaeological site of Elhaw located near the village of Sirisori on the island of Saparua, east of Ambon, east of Haruku, in the Province of Maluku, Indonesia. Elhaw covers about two hectares in area and is composed mostly of old grave sites and rock wall work. Very little is known of this site, and it has not been investigated by professional archaeologists. Local people regard the site as mysterious, magical, and sacred. Lucky he remembered to bring his Esri T-shirt.

Dan Cypert, chief deputy, Washington County Assessor's Office, located in Fayetteville, Arkansas, proudly showed off his Esri T-shirt in front of Koninklijk (Royal) Palace on Dam Square in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The Royal Palace was built in the 17th century as the new city hall of Amsterdam. Dam Square was created in the 13th century when a dam was built on the Amstel River to prevent the Zuiderzee sea from swamping the city. Dan's Esri T-shirt added just the right touch!

Sherayah Foster and Halena Cogan, GIS interns for Calista Corporation—Alaska Native Regional Corporation, were heads-up digitizing strike and dip measurements from a scanned and georeferenced geologic map. They were measuring the angle of a bedding symbol, then entering the rotation angle and dip into the attribute table. The U.S. Geological Survey 250K-scale maps in the background show Calista's Native Regional Corporation boundary in western Alaska. In a pinch, they couldn't come up with an Esri T-shirt, but they improvised pretty well!

Ole Seidel, chief executive officer of alta4 Geoinformatik AG, an Esri Germany Business Partner, and his wife Kerstin, took a backcountry ski trip to Guentli-Spitze, Kleinwalsertal, Austrian Alps, 2.097 meters in elevation, but it was just too cold to wear T-shirts. Kerstin had the right idea on how to stay warm, though.
