Jeff Searle and Adrian Welsh had the opportunity to attend the annual Esri User Conference (UC) held in San Diego, California in July. The conference is held to learn about best practices in the GIS industry and get a jump start on the latest geospatial technology.
This was Esri’s biggest conference ever with nearly 18,000 registered attendees. The main theme of “The Science of Where” resonated throughout the technical workshops and training sessions. The theme allowed attendees to solve problems in real-time, using location and geography to integrate, analyze, and understand all types of data.
Due to Adrian’s presence in the GIS community and winning an MVP award for his diligence and assistance, he was asked to give a presentation at the Esri UC to discuss why the GIS community is important and what made him a success story. Adrian was honored to write a blog post for each day of the Esri conference. (a link to this blog post will be at the end of this write-up).
