Looking for a fresh reason to participate in the annual map gallery and contest at UGIC? We’ve got you covered with 5 new categories to inspire you! Maps by students, professionals, and anyone making maps from any disciplines or sector are welcome. The map gallery is an easy and low key way to get involved in the conference and open up a conversation with geospatial professionals.
The gallery is really just a great place to talk about what we all love, maps! Directions to participate in the gallery are at the bottom of this page.
Participants will learn, from Esri Solution Engineers, how to administer their organizational accounts from setting up groups and users to managing service credits, creating maps & apps, and sharing these products. The workshop is hands-on with participants being given access to an ArcGIS Online organizational account that will be provided by Esri. Participants will create web maps for consumption in mobile apps, such as Collector for ArcGIS. Participants will also use Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS to build powerful GIS apps that run on any device. No coding required.
This is a hands-on workshop, and participants must bring their own laptop. Please note that ArcGIS Pro will be used for a portion of this class, so it is highly recommended that participants bring a laptop with a licensed version of ArcGIS Pro (1.4 or later) installed.
I think we’ve know each other long enough that we can be totally open and honest with each other (I reach over and touch you on the knee). This is our pattern… First UGIC will make a big deal about some looming arbitrary abstract deadline (April 3rd, 2017) to present at UGIC 2017 in Park City. Then as this psudo-deadline comes and goes, then the UGIC Board will magically extend the deadline a couple of weeks (April 17th, 2017) in an effort to make you think that you’ve been given a ‘second’ chance to do what you should have done in the first place.
The UGIC Board of Directors is pleased to announce that the 2017 UGIC conference will be held from May 8th through the 12th, 2017 at the Park City Marriott Hotel in Park City, Utah. The Park City Marriott is a modern, beautiful and comfortable venue that is well equipped to serve the needs of the premiere geospatial conference in Utah. Historically the UGIC conference has been an incredible value for attendees who need to maximize every training dollar, and this year will be no exception. The UGIC Board has negotiated a very reasonable accommodations rate of $118 per night at the Marriott. UGIC Conference registration will be $345.
Last week the UGIC Board opened the call for papers for UGIC 2017 at Park City, Utah. We always have really interesting presentations by talented geospatial professionals at UGIC.
I’d like to share a few details about the process of conference presentations as well as highlight the importance of presenting your work at UGIC.
Utah Geographic Information Council (UGIC) is now accepting abstract submissions for breakout presentations at the 2017 UGIC Conference. We are proud of the excellent work being done by geospatial professionals in Utah. The UGIC Conference provides an excellent venue to tell your story. Your content doesn’t have to be ground breaking work and you don’t have to be a polished presenter. This is a conference of laid-back geo-geeks happy to be away from their office for a few days.
The strength of our grassroots GIS organizations is found in users helping users as we all become better at what we do. We would like to hear from a variety of colleagues: public and private sectors, tribal, federal, state, and local governments, educators, managers, innovators, beginners, students, experts, and everywhere in between. We want to hear from YOU!
Everyone is busy and nobody loves public speaking, but sharing your work with the community is worthwhile both for you and for all UGIC members. All of us can think of a time where a conference presentation gave us a great idea or a new perspective on our work. So please make the sacrifice to prepare somthing to share with your friends a UGIC. Especially if you have never presented before!

Details about plenary schedule, pre-conference training, technical sessions, map gallery, vendor sponsorship opportunities and social events will be released as we get closer to the conference. Be sure to watch for surveys from UGIC as the Board determines the best content offerings for the conference. Registration will be opening soon, so be sure to make budget and scheduling plans to join us at the 2017 UGIC Conference in Park City.
UGIC is honored to have GIS evangelist Bernie Szukalski @bernszukalski join us as our plenary session speaker. Bern has decades of experience in the industry and has a unique perspective of the ESRI user community. Beyond his obvious qualifications, Bernie is a long time friend of UGIC and has joined us for many UGIC conferences. Bernie’s greatest satisfaction comes from helping the user community understand and become successful with new technologies, bringing feedback to development teams and driving software evolution, and lifting new products to success. We are thrilled to have him join us for the plenary session, workshop sessions, and he will also spend time with individual users. Joining Bern will be Chris LeSueur @ChrisLeSueur, technical marketing analyst and product specialist with ESRI. Chris will present at the plenary session and share the latest mobile solutions from ESRI.
On Friday we are excited to hear from Kevin Poe @ithedarkranger. Kevin is with the National Park Service and is a night sky expert. Kevin is a stargazer and runs an astronomy and tourism business from near Bryce Canyon. By the way, Bryce Canyon has one of the darkest night sky’s in all of North America so be sure to bring your telescope! So stick around at the conference through Friday and be inspired by Kevin Poe “The Dark Ranger”.
