ESRI at Autodesk University 2021

ESRI and Autodesk are working together to bring GIS and building information modeling (BIM) across multidisciplinary teams and project life cycles. GIS extends the value of BIM design data through visualization and analysis of structures in the context of the natural and built environment. GIS and BIM integrations enable designers and engineers to design smarter, more efficient buildings and infrastructure.

Attend virtually at Autodesk University this year to hear industry leaders discuss GIS integrations for Autodesk and learn how geospatial engineering drives better decision-making. Discover more about ESRI hosted classes and to schedule a meeting at the virtual booth. Click below for more info.

There is an ArcGIS Online item for every version which can be accessed directly from this app.

Available versions of the World Imagery map are presented within a timeline and as layers in a list. Versions that resulted in local changes are highlighted in bold white, and the layer currently selected is highlighted in blue. Point and click on the map for additional imagery details within the selected layer. One or more layers can be added to a queue and pushed to a new ArcGIS Online web map. Check it out!
