Six weeks ago, I took up the PR & Communications Coordinator role with Esri Australia.
When it comes to working in the GIS industry, you don’t get much greener than me – well, maybe apart from the guy who started on Monday!
The learning curve has been huge, but it’s a challenge I’m relishing.
The Esri Australia Directions 2014 roadshow has been touring the country over the past week and on Monday it stopped in Brisbane – the home of EA’s head office – giving me a fantastic opportunity to immerse myself in the world of GIS.
Thanks to all who braved the rain on Friday to attend Directions 2014 in Canberra. It was great to see such a good crowd. A show of hands during Gary Farmer’s welcome suggested that a significant number were at their first Directions event. That was really good to see and we hope it’ll be the first of many.
The theme of this year’s Directions tour is “sharpening your skills” and the sessions during the day are designed to stimulate thinking around how users can get more from their ArcGIS with a mix of new tools, smart ways to use existing tools, and general tips and techniques to be more productive when using the software.
After stepping out of an incredible plenary session and indulging on the delectable spread, I made my way over to see Esri’s Ismael Chivite and our very own Keera Pullman present on “What’s new in 10.2”. Now that 10.2 has landed I was excited to learn about all the new functionality and enhancements in quality, performance and security.
It’s here. We are excited to let you know that Dekho 3.1 has officially been released!
As you can tell, we’re pretty excited by the launch of Dekho 3.1 which adds some cool new functionalities and capabilities to our geographic web application server….
How is Dekho 3.1 different? Well, in a nutshell, it’s simply a better product. We spent around nine months developing, consolidating and improving Dekho. So, song and dance aside, what’s makes this version of Dekho so cool (well in our opinion anyway, we hope you agree)…
