Esri UC through Aussie Young Scholar’s eyes

Esri Australia

As the winner of the Esri Young Scholars Award for Australia, Grace Lin, won an all-expenses paid trip to present her research project at the 2014 Esri International User Conference in San Diego. Here, Grace reflects on the whirlwind week – where she rubbed shoulders with some of the best GIS minds from around the world.

Day One

Today we arrived in San Diego and it is such beautiful city, this is my first time to be here.

The San Diego Convention Centre – where they will hold the UC – is so huge, it really is amazing.

And you can see Esri symbols everywhere!

After we settled in, I met up with some of the other Young Scholars organized through the Facebook Esri Young Scholar group. We had drink and dinner together and talked about our projects. It is so great to meet those guys here.

Esri UC reflections and the GIS tech headed our way

Good read for those that missed the Esri International UC this year.

Esri Australia

Fresh from my trip to the US, I thought it would be valuable to share my UC highlights with you all – particularly as we’ll be showcasing the technology featured there at Ozri this October.

Surrounded by 15,000 other spatial professionals from 132 countries around the world, the conference provided a great opportunity to share, collaborate and learn.

Just as important, was the sense of community the event generated. The multinational, multidisciplinary crowd descended upon San Diego to celebrate the value, versatility and beauty of maps. Adding to the community vibe the UC Selfie, limited edition pin badges and Map Man T-shirts.

In addition to witnessing the visually stunning and truly inspirational UC plenary, I had the opportunity to talk with many of Esri’s technical specialists (and superstars) to get a feel for where the ArcGIS platform is going – and how users in Australia stand to benefit.
