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!

UGIC 2017 Pre-conference Workshop Details


 – Bring your own laptop! Software installation required prior to attending workshop.

Getting the Most Out of ArcGIS Online (Joseph Peters) 

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.

Can We Be Honest With Each Other?

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.
