Esri User Conference 2016

Aside from a day at the Esri Federal GIS Conference, I’ve been laying fairly low from geo industry events for about the past year. There’s no single reason for that; it’s been more that a combination of things like work deadlines or family happenings have taken priority over conflicting conferences and events. I’ve generally been watching from afar, finding tweet streams and their attendant embedded links to be particularly effective.

I had been considering heading out to San Diego for the Esri user conference this year. It’s the largest gathering of geospatial people in one place every year. Even if you are not an Esri user and can’t attend the event itself, it’s worth going and being in the vicinity as 15,000 geographers descend on San Diego.

See You at the UC

I have finalized my travel plans for San Diego to attend the ESRI User Conference this year. I will be spending most of my time on the exhibit floor working a booth. My company, Zekiah Technologies, became a GSA reseller for Arc2Earth this year so Zekiah will have a joint booth with Arc2Earth.

I’ll be there with Brian and Jack Flood and we’ll have the newly-released Arc2Earth v3 on display. Come by booth 632 to see A2E Cloud Services (using Google’s Cloud) in action as well as integration with ArcGIS.com and a number of other features, including the new ability to export ArcGIS layer styles to SLD (more on that in a future post). Don’t forget the free A2E Community Edition. If you won’t be at the UC, that’s a great way to check out what it can do.
