Speakers Showcase the Power of Geographic Thinking
A new Esri Web site provides an extensive library of videos demonstrating the far-reaching use and potential of geographic knowledge. The site offers inspiring presentations and resources for longtime geographic information system (GIS) users as well as those who are simply interested in exploring the increasingly important role geography plays in society today.
The collection of videos on Esri Video (esri.com/video) is expanding rapidly and features expert insights on a variety of geospatial topics, full-length technical sessions, and software demonstrations. Presenters include thought leaders such as Harvard University landscape architecture professor Carl Steinitz, GIS pioneer Roger Tomlinson, and Technology/Entertainment/Design (TED) conferences founder Richard Saul Wurman.
The site features an intuitive design and offers several ways to search for content. Video transcripts allow viewers to follow along with the presenter and navigate to desired sections. Viewers can also comment on videos, mark their favorites, download full transcripts, and click to instantly share videos via social media. Visit esri.com/video to explore Esri Video content.
