Clint Brown, Director of Product Engineering, Esri

Ten years ago, as people everywhere on the planet began to use and be amazed by Google Maps and other web mapping tools, we all became GIS users.

This is an important story about where GIS has been and where we are headed. As practitioners, how will we transform our dialog and communications about our work to make GIS more broadly accessible by an ever-expanding community of new users.
