“Esri User Conference is a unique opportunity to meet and exchange experiences with experts in different fields from many parts of the world. You meet people that subsequently collaborate and exchange ideas on common GIS applications – an opportunity that would not only not be utilized, but would not think it exists. Because GIS opens up new horizons. Opens the world. ” Said one of the thousands of participants in the conference.

Can this be done on a global scale? Advances in computing, web, mobile devices, real-time measurements and GIS software makes this possible. And not only can, but must, because only in this way we are able to manage our business, our environment and the world at all to informed, effective and sustainable. “
