Episode 16: The Great Indoors

As the summer heats up, it’s time to take your GIS indoors. We will chat with our indoors insider about all things indoor mapping. Plus, we’ll get the highlights of the best advancements in the latest release of ArcGIS Online from our GeoGeek.

What's Making Us Mappy [1:22]

Our hosts share one cool thing that is catching their eye in the world of ArcGIS. 

It’s July, so Maggie and Mark have the same mappy thing in mind – Esri User Conference! Maggie is heading to San Diego for the first time, so she shares what she is looking forward to (and say hi to her at Canada Night). Mark, being the jaded veteran of the UC, offers some advice on what to see and do during the week. And don’t worry if you can’t fly down to California. You can watch the plenary and tech sessions live (register here). And that content will be published post-UC you can see it on demand. No matter how to connect with the UC – Have fun and enjoy!

Inside the Arc [5:54

Feature interview that takes our audience inside an Esri product or capability.

When you think about GIS data, you normally think of parcels, streets, trees or boundaries. But more and more organizations are taking their GIS inside. From space utilization to wayfinding, indoor GIS is impacting facilities management and mapping. To tell us more about the present and future of indoor GIS, we are joined by Alistair McDougall. He is a Product Specialist for Indoor GIS at Esri Canada and our resident expert in all things ArcGIS Indoors.
