Esri Canada Webinars

Essential GIS Capabilities for Operations Centres
September 14, 1 – 2 pm (ET)
Esri’s ArcGIS platform empowers organizations to achieve shared situational awareness by integrating multiple sources of information and making it accessible to emergency responders through dynamic maps, dashboards and web applications.

Thinking Outside the Box: Customizing Esri Story Maps

Esri Story Maps are a great way to tell your story by combining authoritative maps with narrative text, images and multimedia content.

We will also review best practices for creating compelling story maps.

Smart Communities for Any Community
September 28, 1 – 2 pm (ET)
Every community, regardless of size, has the potential to use data and technology to become a smart community. ArcGIS Hub can make a smart community even smarter, giving context and purpose to data. It organizes people, processes and technology to meet the needs of citizens and government organizations. In this session, we will look at some case studies and solutions that are geared towards helping any community create sustainable, repeatable and integrated services.

What’s New with Imagery in ArcGIS
October 5, 1 – 2 pm (ET)
Whether you need to extract actionable information from satellite imagery or use drone data to support your projects, ArcGIS provides you with the tools and workflows required to accomplish your goals. Join us as we look at the new capabilities available in ArcGIS for integrating and extracting information from imagery. We’ll also explore how you can use parallel processing and distributed computing to process imagery in a fraction of the time traditionally required. 

Making Sense of the Big Data That is Your Road/Street Network
October 17, 1 – 2 pm (ET)
A municipal road network is complex. This webinar will investigate how a spatially and linearly enabled road management system can accommodate operational and service requirements while making road network information accessible to more people in the environment. We will also investigate how spatial business intelligence tools can interpret the data to gain useful and actionable insight into a highly complex road network.
