Many thanks to those of you who attended or expressed interest in our first ever Esri Science Symposium as part of both the UC and the GIS Education conferences. Your presence and participation made for a very stimulating and enjoyable time. Here are some resources to visit:
- Keynote of Dr. Margaret Leinen, Director of Scripps Institution of Oceanography and President of the American Geophysical Union at http://esriurl.com/sci2016. Her keynote was entitled, “What will be necessary to understand and protect the planet… and us?"
- Some great photos of the keynoter and the discussion panelists at http://esriurl.com/sciphotos
- A Twitter stream of reactions during the keynote, discussion panel, audience Q&A, and reception at https://storify.com/deepseadawn/2016-esri-science-symposium
Next year we will field a new GIScience panel to respond to a new domain science keynote which will be delivered by Jon Foley, Executive Director of the California Academy of Sciences, possibly in tandem with his new Chief of Science, Shannon Bennett.
