ESRI Offers No-cost Seminars on Using GIS for Efficiency
ESRI is presenting a series of no-cost water seminars in 20 U.S. cities in September and October. Water professionals will see how geographic information system (GIS) technology enables them to use the geographic approach to obtain operational awareness across the enterprise. They will find out how GIS enables them to integrate asset management tools and apply mobility solutions, ultimately improving their operational planning.
Water professionals make crucial decisions every day and depend on having reliable, accessible data at their fingertips. This seminar will teach them how to implement and maintain a water information system using GIS. They will discover how GIS is crucial to effective and efficient operations both in day-to-day business activities and in an emergency.
"This is a great opportunity for water executives and managers to not only interact with their local peers but also explore how they can use GIS for their daily decisions and long-range planning," says Chuck Cmeyla, public works industry solutions manager, ESRI. "They will hear lessons learned at other water utilities, see live demonstrations, and be able to interact with several ESRI business partners during our Solutions Fair."
Water executives involved in the management, design, and maintenance of water systems, as well as the GIS professionals who support them, are encouraged to attend a seminar. Participants will learn about GIS for water, including how to more effectively manage an infrastructure, get information into and out of the field, and gain a comprehensive view of operations. Attendees will also delve into solutions used today in the water industry and become familiar with new solutions.
