At this year's Esri User Conference (UC), we will be having a new Special Interest Group (SIG) meeting.  If you are attending the UC, please join us to explore GIS for environmental and natural resources government agencies. This is a unique opportunity to hear from your peers and Esri subject matter experts regarding the latest technological advancements and tips and tricks to improve your everyday work. The agenda includes lightning talks from users working in various environmental and natural resources agencies.


Topics to be discussed include:
• integrated field mobility approaches for species management
• real-time wildlife tracking for enhanced conservation decision-making
• approaches to usability of configured versus custom recreation applications
• aligning agricultural business objectives with Esri tools
• collaborative approaches to the communication of harmful algal bloom (HAB) detections

We will also provide the opportunity to ask questions, as well connect with other folks from this diverse community.  The SIG will take place on Wednesday July 10th 11:30 -12:30 in SDCC, Room 24C.  We hope to see you at this event!

The Esri User Conference has many presentations and events with hundreds of topics covered. To help you find your way to the state and local government environment and natural resources sessions and events, we have prepared a more focused agenda.  We hope you find this useful and we hope to see everyone in July!

Our solutions team has been working on some new solution sets as well as some upgrades to existing solution sets. The team will be hosting an online meetup to highlight some of their development work and illustrate some of the changes to the Natural Resource and Wildlife Locators.


These meetups are for our user community and are open to the public. The user will just need to create a free account to join.


We’ll discuss a collection of ArcGIS Solutions that can be used by natural resource, fish and wildlife, parks and recreation, and planning staff to promote outdoor recreational opportunities in a state or local community.

Check out this recent Esri Blog Post on a new map-based app provided by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WI DNR) to help guide hunters with the many great hunting opportunities that exist in the state!  With the app, hunters can explore where to hunt and gain location-specific details about their favorite hunting spots, as well as finding public lands information and viewing hunting regulations.  For WI DNR, the app allows the agency to gain details about hunter behavior in order to provide better customer service.  

Check out this story map from NatureServe in support of the Endangered Species Act.  Story maps continue to grow in terms of how they are being applied and what topics they address.  Amazing work!
