Redlands, California—The 2006 ESRI Federal User Conference, taking place January 31–February 2, 2006, at the Washington, D.C., Convention Center, will explore the use of GIS for geoprocessing and analysis, integrated work flows, and intelligent collaboration across government agencies.
This year’s conference will also include state government agencies and a special focus on intergovernmental partnerships.
GIS technology is an important and proven decision-making tool for governments to respond to challenges efficiently, enhance business functions, improve service delivery, and plan successfully for the future. By using GIS software, governments can unite information from many departments to create a common map-based data display, analysis, and dissemination platform, enabling staff to visualize information in new ways. Geographic data can be used across all departments, in the field, and on the Internet, resulting in more comprehensive policies and a better-informed and more engaged community.
“The Federal User Conference not only focuses on the direction of the software and sharing the latest information, it also gives attendees the opportunity to network with each other and ESRI business partners to find the best GIS solution to meet their current needs,” says Chris Thomas, ESRI government solutions manager.
All levels of GIS users will benefit from attending the 2006 ESRI Federal User Conference. The event will include comprehensive briefings on ESRI technology that focus on the latest developments of the software, keynote speakers who provide a vision of the future of GIS, breakout sessions that offer real-world examples and expert knowledge, a Map Gallery highlighting user accomplishments, and a GIS Solutions EXPO that features various applications and related technologies.
