The 2013 Esri International User Conference will be held July 8–12 at the San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, California. The Esri UC covers the entire spectrum of the geospatial industry, bringing together social, economic, business, and environmental leaders who are redefining how people work together at every scale.
At Esri UC, GIS professionals can spend five days experiencing more than 900 GIS success stories, best practices, and real world projects. This year includes presentations on mobile devices, cloud-based computing, GIS workflows, data management, and new features that improve the efficiency of GIS solutions.
Pre-conference seminars will be held July 6-7.
Map Gallery submissions are now open. At last year’s event, Esri featured more than 700 maps from users around the world and across virtually every industry. All submitted maps are considered for one of several cartographic awards and are screened for possible publication in an upcoming edition of the Esri Map Book. Last year’s winners included:
- Jesse Nett of the USDA Forest Service (Best Overall Winner)
- Jeannett Phillips of the Chickasaw Nation (UC People’s Choice Award Winner)
- David Frank of the City of Santa Clarita (Most Unique)
Map Gallery submissions close on May 31.
