Esri Canada Webinars

Considering Community Development in the Third Dimension
November 2, 1-2 pm (ET)
Every aspect of the urban environment exists in three-dimensional space incorporating buildings, roads, bridges, trees, streetlights, topography and other key features. To make effective decisions, planners need a way to understand how these features impact one another in the real world.

Integrated Field Workflows with ArcGIS Mobile Apps
November 30, 1 – 2 pm (ET)
With ArcGIS, you can take your GIS to the field and back. ArcGIS apps for the field run on desktops, the web, smartphones and tablets, so you can be productive no matter where you are or which device you are using. This session will review how ArcGIS apps support specific workflows for all users in your organization to plan, coordinate, run and monitor field operations. You will learn how to deploy apps to meet your data collection needs and how to integrate your field data for effective collaboration with your office GIS users.
