With Ozri 2012 now becoming a distant memory, we’re well underway with planning for Directions 2013, Esri Australia’s Tour de Force. Last year we saw over 1,000 people in nine cities come along to hear all about ways of extending GIS throughout an organisation through a mix of Esri Australia demonstrations and client presentations.
In 2013, Directions is going to be bigger and better – with full day programs in every state (and Townsville!). The popular ArcBar will be back, so you can connect with Esri Australia knowledge experts and ask as many questions as you would like, and gain a better understanding of how to improve your everyday workflows. Our Esri Australia technology experts will also be on stage sharing their knowledge and expertise across a wide range of topics.
A key focus for Directions 2013 is user showcase presentations. I know that many of you come along to Directions speak to your peers and find out what they have been doing over the past 12 months. To showcase your GIS achievements, we’ve opened up a call for papers for Directions 2013.
We’ve also added a new feature to the program this year – GeoByte talks. These talks are snapshots – of only 5 minutes – of a particular project or even tips and tricks that you can share with your peers. Head to the Call for Papers webpage to nominate yourself to present a GeoByte at your local Directions event.
Don’t forget to put the dates in your diary for the Directions event closest to you. Registration and the full program will be available soon – so keep an eye on the blog and our website for more details.
