There’s no arguing that the annual ESRIUC is a great networking opportunity, however, first and foremost, it’s a terrific educational experience. After several days my brain was swelling and over-flowing with information and me wondering how to digest it all! The opening plenary day at the annual ESRIUC is an interesting and motivating event indeed. The day is all about the road ahead for Esri users and hearing about the development and roadmap for ArcGIS and the user community. Many topics were covered during several hours of presentations and a number of interesting points were brought up. The following are but a few of the topics of interest that I felt were noteworthy and of interest to the ArcGIS user.
- All desktop users at 10.2 get an online subscription
- New apps at 10.2 including Data collector, explorer, dashboard – Enforcing the concept of web GIS apps
- What do I get with a desktop license? You get one subscription for one named user
- Esri is the biggest user of our own software
