Event: Local Applications of ArcGIS Online

Description: Join the RIGIS Community and Esri for a discussion on best practices and use cases for applying ArcGIS Online to your work. This three-hour event, sponsored by the URI Coastal Institute, will provide a series of presentations by your peers in the GIS community, opportunities for networking, and direct time with Esri staff to learn the latest features and best practices for using ArcGIS Online.


This event will be ideally suited to any GIS practitioner or manager of technology interested in learning about the latest uses and trends in GIS in the region and beyond. Users will be sharing their work for local perspective, with breaks provided to connect with one another. Esri will also be available to discuss examples from other customers and answer questions, while providing insight to the latest evolution and best practices.


When: Friday, August 28, 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM


Where: Coastal Institute, University of Rhode Island, Narragansett Bay Campus Auditorium – 218 South Ferry Road, Narragansett, Rhode Island


Presentations: We are looking for anyone from Rhode Island to give a presentation on their use of ArcGIS Online.  Their use of AGOL need not use RIGIS data or include RI in its study area.  We are mainly looking for RI GIS users to show how they are using AGOL in their daily work, or as a way to help others review/explore their work, or learn more about geospatial technology.
