Here’s a snapshot of upcoming events: fall Esri Canada User Conferences, a webinar about building apps in a snap, a course on image analysis and much more.


Leveraging Data and Analytics in the ArcGIS System
October 13, 1-2pm (ET)
Organizations are always looking for ways to enhance their own data to make more informed decisions. Using geoenrichment, along with the ability to combine your own data with demographics, you can gain a deeper understanding of what and who is in your area. In this webinar, we’ll show you how you can make more informed geographic decisions by leveraging data and analytics in the ArcGIS system. This session will explore what demographic data and content are available to you and how you can leverage these data sources in your organization.

Configuring Your Apps in a Snap: A Behind the Scenes Look at Preparing Your Web Apps
November 24, 1-2pm (ET)
Creating effective and engaging web apps is becoming an increasingly popular way of presenting your GIS data to others. Although end-users only see what is presented on the web, there is work to be done behind the scenes to prepare the underlying data. In this webinar, we will introduce you to some of our recent, popular web apps. Using these web apps as an example, we’ll provide insight on what you should consider when configuring your data before creating the web app on ArcGIS Online. Once the data considerations are established, the webinar will conclude by demonstrating how to configure some out-of-the-box web app templates.
