There have been many blogs written about the technical aspect of the Esri® International User Conference (UC). If you are looking for that type of blog, I need to forewarn you… this is not it!

As part of the 2nd Annual GeoD ecisions Hack-a-thon competition, I worked with my Madison, Wisconsin, coworkers to create “EasyAsset,” a mobile GIS data collection application with Optical Character Recognition (OCR). This tool would enable field workers to more easily collect GIS data points by taking a picture of a nameplate, model number, or asset tag on a hydrant, pump, sign, or signal.

As a new U.S. immigrant, I did not know much about American sports, especially baseball. GeoDecisions’ 2014 Map-A-Thon contest (a spin-off from our annual Hack-A-Thon innovation event), seemed like a great chance for me to become more familiar with different American baseball teams and fan demographics. Although I am still learning the finer details of how the sport is played, compiling baseball map information helped me to better understand each team’s location and sphere of influence.

GeoDecisions staff traveled well in May, when a cluster of GIS conferences ran concurrently up and down the East Coast. Several of us (on the transportation side, of course) covered the greatest distance to Burlington, Vermont, to experience the annual GIS in Transportation (GIS-T) conference. And it was well worth the trip!

This April, I traveled to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, a city that always amazes me. It is so well planned out with spectacular architecture and a beautiful Corniche, a waterfront filled with restaurants, fountains, and a beach park. While there, I visited one of our business partners, Naeema Al Zarouni, CEO of GeoLinks, a geospatial technology company.

Esri® annual Federal GIS Users Conference (FedUC) recently occurred in Washington, DC. For those not familiar with the FedUC, the majority of participants either work in, or work with, the federal government. An Esri Gold-tier Business Partner, GeoDecisions was well-represented at the event with several attendees and an exhibitor booth. The conference is considered the primer that starts Esri’s new conference year.
