My colleagues and I are pleased to share the lineup of Esri short courses and presentations to be presented this April at the European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2017 in Vienna, Austria. Many know of EGU as the premier Earth, space, and planetary sciences scholarly organization of Europe, with over 12,500 members from around the world. It is a sister organization of the American Geophysical Union (AGU). EGU's annual assembly is the largest, most prominent geosciences event in Europe, attracting over 11,000 attendees from all over the world, of which more than 25% are students. 

You’ll see in the list below of short courses and papers or posters that Esri is leading or contributing on the SCIENCE of WHERE in a number of areas. This showcases how we are an organization that not only enables great understanding of the world with our products and services, but also performs good science, and contributes well as a member of the scientific community. In addition, we will have an exhibit booth presence (led by Frank Holsmuller) with messaging and a daily schedule of demos featuring:

  • Imagery/Drone2Map
  • the ArcGIS Python API and the R-ArcGIS Bridge
  • Open Data, The Living Atlas, and Story Maps
  • Ecological Marine Units and Hydrology
  • Insights and GeoAnalytical Server

I thank the many colleagues who have worked so hard to make all of this happen, especially Frank, Michael Gould, Guenter Doerffel (Synergis, Esri Austrian distributor), Ionut Sandric and Alexandru Vasile (Esri Romania), and Daniela Wingert and Melanie Brandmeier (Esri Germany).

Check out EarthXplorers, a great proof-of-concept to help transform K-12 env education 


A new video (above) describes EarthXplorers, a project of the University of Minnesota's LT Media Lab in partnership with Esri, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and others. EarthXplorers is a successful proof-of-concept that pairs mapping with an online learning environment to support guided project-based learning at the K-12 level. Thanks to David DiBiase and Charlie Fitzpatrick for this info!
