The Science of Where

Esri in most communities tells us where we are on a map, plus a lot more!

See the announcement below to register. I thought you might be interested in the event, July 7. The announcement follows. What got my attention was the words "imagery," "remote sensing," "AI" (should that be considered a word?). I wish I could attend, but alas, it is not in the budget ...

"The pace at which imagery and remote sensing data are being incorporated into our GIS, mapping, and location intelligence workflows has accelerated rapidly. Every year, we see a flood of new data sources from satellites, aircraft, drones, and terrestrial collection systems. Managing and analyzing all this data to better inform your decision-making processes is challenging our organizations and creating an environment of innovation.

I would like to personally invite you to join us to explore these topics at the 2019 Imagery Summit @ Esri UC, to be held at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina Hotel.

This year's theme, Imagery: Where GIS Success Begins, will explore the foundational nature of remote-sensing data in enhancing our work. This information-packed day will include an introduction to the new Esri remote sensing and imagery cross-sector team, engaging panel discussions, and presentations from industry luminaries, as well as information about the latest technical advancements with imagery in ArcGIS.

Join us on July 7 to learn about:

-How the ArcGIS imagery platform can be leveraged to efficiently manage and analyze your data.
-The roles of imagery and lidar in building your workflows.
-The use of derived imagery products to create your 3D GIS.
-Remote-sensing applications in artificial intelligence (AI) for automation, augmentation, and derived insights.
-The latest in data collection technology and how it applies to your workflows.
-Business trends and the opportunities they provide."

We look forward to seeing you in San Diego!
