Speakers from the international community of geographic information system (GIS) data users will address the attendees. David Zilkoski, director of the National Geodetic Survey of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), will explore the importance of remotely sensed data as well as managing the country’s National Spatial Reference System. In addition, Dr. Devendra Pandey from the Forest Survey of India will discuss the impact of remote sensing and GIS in managing India’s forests, including how the technology has been used to mitigate encroachment conflicts.
ESRI chief scientist Dr. David Maguire will welcome attendees and discuss ESRI’s vision for managing rapidly expanding catalogs of imagery and other raster data easily and efficiently with the ArcGIS family of products.
“With today’s large volumes and varieties of data, enterprise solutions require the integrated management of various forms of raster and vector data in a GIS,” says Mark Cygan, map, chart, and data production industry solutions manager, ESRI. “ESRI’s robust ArcGIS technology enables our users to manage this geospatial data through standards-based, service-oriented architecture enterprise solutions.”
