California, Mexico, Hungary—Esri T-Shirts for All Seasons!

Larry Costick

Larry Costick, research ecologist and wildfire GIS specialist for U.S. Forest Service Burned Area Emergency Response teams, worked to finish spreading rice straw (background) to minimize rain impact and help stabilize soils after the Sims Fire destroyed valuable forests adjacent to the South Fork Trinity River near Hyampom in northern California. Of course, his Esri T-shirt stayed clean and sparkling through the entire operation.

Pedro Torres, a master's student in computer science (Polytechnic University of Madrid, Spain), works as a GIS consultant in Spain at the Sitesa Industry Department. During his last holidays, he visited the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza, Yucatan, Mexico. Originating in Yucatan, the Maya rose to prominence around A.D. 250 in present-day southern Mexico, Guatemala, northern Belize, and western Honduras. Building on the inherited inventions and ideas of earlier civilizations, such as the Olmec, the Mayans developed astronomy, calendrical systems, and hieroglyphic writing. The Mayans, however, did not have cool Esri T-shirts!

Pásztor László, spatialist, senior research fellow, Research Institute for Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry GIS Lab of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, was localizing and resampling certain soil survey plots in Hungary when this photo was snapped of him wearing the 6-year-old Esri T-shirt that he received at the 13th Esri European User Conference held in Firenze, Italy, in 1998.

Bryan Lightner, GIS specialist with the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, City Planning Commission, recently visited China for a five-week professional planning exchange program. He explored such cities as Beijing (pictured), Shanghai, and Hangzhou. The exchange was between Philadelphia and the city of Wenzhou, located along the "gold coast," southeastern Zhejiang Province. Wenzhou city planners have been taught how to incorporate public participation into their neighborhood planning process, as well how to better use urban design guidelines and GIS technology to help cope with their rapid growth. Beijing, it must be added, proved to be a great backdrop for photographing his Esri T-shirt.

Pat Raimondo (right), a geography graduate student at Texas State University-San Marcos, and Mary Beth Booth, who is on the faculty at Austin Community College where she teaches GIS, recently visited Costa Rica as part of a GIS in the Jungle Class sponsored by Esri Business Partner GISetc and Texas State University. In this picture, they are wearing Esri "I Love Geography" T-shirts while standing on one of the suspensions bridges of the skywalk near Monteverde cloud forest. Mary Beth tells us, "It was an amazing experience." We are tempted to believe she is referring to wearing the T-shirts, but she is more likely speaking of being way above most of the canopy of the rain forest.
