Join Us Virtually at the Esri UC 2020!

Blog Post created by bharold-esristaff Employee on Jul 13, 2020

The 2020 Esri User Conference has many sessions on the ArcGIS Open Platform. We want to make it easy for you to work successfully in a heterogeneous environment. To create an open and interoperable system, Esri has adopted a multifaceted approach, including support of: standards; direct integrations with non-GIS technology; direct read & write of hundreds of data formats; open developers’ tools; ETL tools; metadata; open source; open data sharing; and SDI.
