  1. GIS in Action: ESRI Dr. Aileen Buckley Cartographic Researcher Cartographic Research and Special Projects Group ESRI - Redlands

  2. ESRI ESRI Purpose • Advance GIS • Serve Users and Partners • Develop Professional GISWorkforce • Support Employees • Growth / Stability Educational Community Our relationships with educational institutions are important

  3. ESRI • Environmental Systems Research Institute • Redlands, California

  4. GIS Integrates… Geography is a “Key” Social Factors GIS Concepts Roads/Infrastructure • Georeferencing • Digital Processing • Map Overlay • Spatial Analysis • Visualization Water Land Use/Land Cover Imagery Environment Base Maps . . . Disciplines, Organizations, and Activities

  5. GIS Is Being Deployed In Many Ways

  6. Business Business Solutions Financial Services Insurance Media and Press Real Estate Defense Defense and Intelligence Education Universities and Community Colleges Schools (K–12) Libraries and Museums Engineering Civil Engineering Surveying Government Economic Development Elections Federal Homeland Security Land Records and CadastralSolutions Law Enforcement Public Works Public Safety State and Local Sustainable Development Urban and Regional Planning GIS Application Areas

  7. Transportation Logistics Transportation Systems and Networks Utilities Electric and Gas Location-Based Services Pipeline Telecommunications Water/Wastewater Health and Human Services Hospitals and Health Systems Public Health and Human Services National Mapping and Cartographic Publishing Map, Chart, and Data Production Natural Resources Agriculture Archaeology Cave and Karst Environmental Management Forestry Marine and Coast Mining and Earth Science Petroleum Water Resources GIS Application Areas

  8. Software The Software Products and Software Development Groups Prototypes Software Enhancements New Software Applications The Professional Services Group Contracts Consulting How ESRI is Organized

  9. The ESRI Software Products Group • Just over 200 employees • Work with Scott Morehouse’s Software Development (SW Dev) Group of programmers to build ESRI software • Our Group is responsible for: • Design of GIS operators and tools (Shared with SW Dev) • User Interface (Shared with SW Dev) • User Documentation • Testing • Software Releases • Capture and communicate best practices for GIS • Help users solve problems using GIS Looking for experienced GIS Professionals whorepresent and understand our user community

  10. Cartographic Research and Special Projects Group • dedicated toteaching people how to make good maps with ArcGIS software • encourage GIS users to employ the same concepts and techniques as professional cartographers • develop and delivered Best Practices information to users • teach mapmaking to GIS users • work with noted academics • Dr. Cynthia Brewer of The Pennsylvania State University • Dr. Barbara Buttenfield of the University of Colorado-Boulder • Dr. Robert McMaster of the University of Minnesota – Minneapolis • Dr. Jon Kimerling of Oregon State University!!!

  31. Ideal GIS Students • Staying current with GIS technology • Learning hands-on • Working with real data and information sets • Working on real problems • Learning to solve problems on your own • Communicating the problem, the methods, the results, and the implications of your results • Mapping! • Theory and concepts AND applications and experiences • Programming

  32. For the future… • Think of ESRI as a place to work • Internship program – flyers • Cathy Mueller, ESRI Director of Human Resources • Me – cards
