Learn about New Innovations in ArcGIS 10 at Esri UC's Imagery Events

By Karen Richardson, Esri Writer

Attending the Esri International User Conference (Esri UC) in San Diego, California this summer will provide a firsthand opportunity to see how ArcGIS 10 transforms the use of imagery in GIS. ArcGIS 10 gives you the ability to leverage imagery in GIS everywhere: via Web-extended desktops, Web-hosted applications, and cloud GIS. The Imagery@UC2010 track, being held during the Esri UC from July 12-16, will help attendees

The Imagery@UC2010 track will provide an easy way to participate in all technical presentations, moderated paper sessions, and special interest events related to using remotely sensed data in GIS. The track will be held in Ballroom A and B at the Omni Hotel throughout the week. The event will begin Tuesday, July 13, with a Keynote Address by Jan Van Sickle, president of Van Sickle LLC. Van Sickle's talk will be followed by technical workshops and users' paper presentations throughout the week. Search the agenda for a complete list of moderated paper sessions, technical workshops, and special presentations.

Don't miss moderated paper sessions on topics such as using sensor data and how to successfully use remotely sensed data in GIS. One session discussing the lidar life cycle, automation, and future developments will include presentations from the Coastal Regional Commission, PhotoScience, North Carolina Division of Emergency Management, and Woolpert.

Another session, called Imagery Strategies for Successful Operations, will be presented on Wednesday, July 14. Staff from the California Department of Water Resources, the San Antonio River Authority, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and PCI Geomatics will discuss how their organizations deal with multiple workflows for imagery.

They also will talk about how imagery allows them to deal with demands to create enhanced products, such as electronic products on demand and specialized datasets, to share with their agency stakeholders.

The Singapore Land Authority and GeoEye will take part in a session entitled Leveraging GIS, Imagery, and Platforms for Situational Awareness and Response.
