2020 ESRI UC All Done

Well, the 2020 ESRI UC has come and gone … actually there are a few more online events and special interest group meetings today.  My impression of this online conference?  Let’s just say parts were informative.  However, I bet it was a monumental task to pull it all together.

The plenary and workshop videos are still online when you login to esri.com/uc .  Not sure how long they will stay up.  I did notice they have some recorded content on YouTube here and also on the ESRI video site here.

Add a comment below about your impressions of the conference.  Let’s hope we are back in San Diego next year!

SCAG/ESRI Special Interest Group Meeting Today

Hello everyone,

This is a reminder of the SCAG/ESRI Special Interest Group meeting, Thursday July 16th from 1 pm to 3 pm.  It is a free event and open to all government agencies.  It will introduce you to an exciting new initiative: the SCAG Regional Data Platform (RDP).  Your involvement in this project is essential to shaping the future of planning and sustainable development in the SCAG region, locally and regionally. To kick-start a meaningful collaboration, we would like to gather local jurisdictions to introduce the project and what it means to you, showcase initial ideas, ask for feedback, and explain what’s coming in the next year. This meeting will also highlight progress on a number of other SCAG initiatives, such as the SoCal Greenprint, and High Injury Network (HIN).

*Please note that this Special Interest Group Meeting is a private event, and is therefore not listed in the official EsriUser Conference schedule

We hope you will join us for this special event!

Join us via Zoom

Please RSVP to the SCAG Special Interest Group Meeting


The RDP Core Team, Tom Vo at vo@scag.ca.gov or Javier Aguilar at aguilar@scag.ca.gov can answers any questions and provide further information on this event.
