The head of the world’s biggest mapping company and one of the most influential people in the spatial sector is set to reveal the future direction of Geographic Information System (GIS) software at a major Asia Pacific technology event.
Jack Dangermond, the Founder and President of Esri, will travel to Singapore to share his insight on ‘where to next’ for GIS at the 2013 Esri Asia Pacific User Conference (APUC), being held November 12-14 at the Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
APUC attendees will have the rare opportunity to personally meet Mr Dangermond and hear his vision for Esri technology firsthand.
APUC Technical Director Kellie Persson said there has never been a more important time for users to have access to the man behind Esri.
“Jack Dangermond shapes the global direction of the technology – and he largely determines how people across the world will use and consume spatial software,” said Ms Persson.
“2013 has been an incredibly significant year for Esri, and the broader spatial industry – with the release of new capabilities such as real-time GIS and location analytics; the launch of ArcGIS 10.2; and growing prevalence of Web GIS.
“APUC is a unique opportunity for Esri users to meet the technology’s creator and gain unprecedented insight into the ongoing development and deployment of Esri technology.”
With the theme of ‘Asia in Transformation’, APUC will also feature more than thirty sessions delivered by experts from across Singapore, Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the United States.
Attendees will learn the latest advancements in the ArcGIS platform, hear case studies and best practices from users across the region, and have the opportunity to attend a range of technical workshops.
