Washington, DC February 24-25.
Because at Rodriguez, we believe that GIS provides a platform like no other, to integrate data, perform dynamic analysis, and then take action, we couldn’t miss the chance to join our Partner Esri, at their great event GIS Fed 2016.
We have sent our new Geodesign Strategist, Veronica to the Esri Federal GIS Conference, which was held Feb. 24–25 in Washington, D.C. GIS Fed is an annual meeting, where you can find more than 3,500 federal professionals and explore ground-breaking ways government uses geospatial technology to solve the world’s greatest challenges.
Here is Veronica’s short coverage and few shots from the conference.
“Esri wasted no time addressing the national crises that can be solved using geography this past Wednesday at the Federal GIS Conference in Washington DC. Since I work closely with the people and technologies of Esri, I was the lucky one to represent Rodriguez Consulting and to make sure our engineers and surveyors are making sustainable and efficient decisions. The conference began with a video which dramatically emphasized the responsiveness and functionality that geospatial data and resources can provide to agencies and companies working on the various aspects of our nation's security and prosperity. There were many revealing conversations to be had which highlighted some of the cutting edge problem solving that decision-makers and GIS analysts are engaging in including fighting wildfires, securing the Olympics, and mapping the nation's green spaces. There were presentations from the President and CEO of National Geographic, the deputy director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, and many others who are users of the Esri platform. A stunning array of private and commercial service providers were also represented at the GIS Solutions Expo which showcased many demonstrations of innovative technologies and professionals over the course of the two-day summit. I was proud to be a part of the conversations around sustainable development, Geodesign for facilities management, and the ways that engineering and survey teams can leverage GIS. The event is just one way that Esri is demonstrating a commitment to their business partners. We are looking forward to teaming with them in the future to create solutions for clients and other industry professionals”.
