The New Zealand Esri User Conference (NZEUC), hosted by Eagle Technology, will run from 18-20 August 2014, at SkyCity, Auckland.

NZEUC is the largest annual gathering of the New Zealand GIS community. Those attending the NZEUC in 2013 represented over 140 organisations, and 30+ industries form within New Zealand. People come to understand the latest developments in the rapidly expanding spatial technology sector. The uptake of Cloud services, the convergence of Location Analytics with Business Intelligence and the delivery of information to mobile devices has expanded the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) across organisations for decisions that impact the environment, communities and business success.

Positioned to follow the Esri International User Conference (San Diego, July 2014), where more than 15,000 GIS Professionals congregate each year, the NZ Esri UC is a must-attend event for the local GIS community to hear first-hand from Esri and Eagle about the strategic direction and technical advances in GIS for 2014 and beyond.

The wall of fame

In an effort to unite the NZ geospatial community, the official Esri distributor for New Zealand and host of the NZEUC, Eagle Technology, has created a “We are GIS” wall of fame.

The wall of fame hoped to build a community of faces, recognisable to each other, across the boundaries of organisation and geography. If you’re an Esri GIS user in NZ, whether you’re a single user or part of a large organisation, you’re invited to add your photo, which will be displayed as part of the “We are GIS” wall of fame on the NZEUC website and on the wall at NZEUC.

To participate, email your photo to marketing@eagle.co.nz with your name and, if you wish, your organisation.

Details for the conference are still emerging, but to find out more, visit the NZEUC website.
