We are pleased to announce that ESRI is an event sponsor of the 3rd Citizen Cyberscience Summit.
Founded in 1969 by Esri president Jack Dangermond and his wife Laura, Esri is an exciting company doing important work. Our technology enables organisations to create responsible and sustainable solutions to problems at local and global scales. At Esri, we believe that geography is at the heart of a more resilient and sustainable future. Developing spatial literacy is crucial to making good decisions that affect global health and community life.
Esri has long supported the widespread use of GIS in classrooms and research labs around the world. Students and faculty alike use GIS to build knowledge and solve problems in over a hundred different fields. We currently have more than 11,000 universities and 20,000 schools using our technology. At Esri UK we understand the increasingly important role GIS has to play in education. GIS allows students of all ages to learn about their world in new and captivating ways and, at the same time, acquire valuable skills they can transfer to the workplace. Visit our education webpages for more information.
Michael Gould, Global Education Manager at ESRI, will talk about ESRI’s support of Citizen Science, and on Friday ESRI UK will run a hands-on workshop on outdoor mobile data collection. Check Lanyrd for the final details: http://lanyrd.com/2014/
