A deep thanks again for your participation in, or remote support of, our Esri Ocean GIS Forum last week, which made it among the best ever. Please find for your enjoyment:


A Storify of the many tweets during the event, including some great photos, story maps, and videos;


A Flickr album of photos, thanks to the expert work of Esri photographer Eric Laycock;


My plenary slide deck on Your Knowledge, Our Community, the Ocean’s Resilience, including important web links therein (one with a Dec. 15th deadline);


The Ocean of Story Maps Collection;


Don’t forget that feedback is still welcome on the National Ocean Exploration Forum discussion thread on GeoNet.


Indeed, we hope to see many, if not all of you, in our Ocean Sciences GeoNet online community in order to CONTINUE the discussions and friendships of the past week.


MARK YOUR CALENDARS for November 6-8, 2018 for next year’s Esri Ocean GIS Forum, site to be determined somewhere in southern California!
