Esri Australia’s 2011 Defence Day is just around the corner…

Below is the agenda for our 2011 Defence Day which is taking place in Canberra on Thursday, 24 March. Defence Day is a free, full day event for Defence professionals. It’s about demonstrating how location can be leveraged across the spectrum of Defence to enhance operational advantage, and will go beyond just the traditional areas of GIS users.

We have some great presenters, including Brian Sloan from Defence who will be discussing the Defence 2010 Geospatial Strategy. A couple of international guests will also be joining us to provide an international perspective to the day and of course some of the Esri Australia team will be presenting as well.

So if you are in Canberra on March 24, are part of the industry and location is your thing, then join us at Hotel Realm. Registration closes on Thursday, 17 March 2011.
