Members of the GovLoop team recently attended the 2011 Esri User Conference located in beautiful San Diego, California. The conference hosted over 16,000 GIS users including a strong government user community.
Here is our first installment of a multiple-part video series. This interview series focuses on how government is using GIS. We had the opportunity to interview several government recipients who were honored with the Special Achievement in GIS (SAG) Award.
First, you will hear from Chris Thomas, the Government Industry Manager for Esri, as he introduces the video series. You will see him give a bit more information about the Esri User Conference and discuss how GIS plays a role in our every day lives.
Hope you enjoyed our first video of the series, be sure to check back next week for our first interview with Jason Duke, Regional GIS Coordinator,U.S Fish and Wildlife Service.
When Esri was founded in 1969, it realized even then that geographic information system(GIS) technology could make a difference in society. GIS helps people to solve problems at local, regional, national, and global scales. Access maps and apps at ArcGIS.com. Esri is a proud partner of GovLoop. Check out Esri onFacebook and Twitter.
