URISA 2012 – Closing Keynote by Jack Dangermond (Part 2 of 2)

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

Last week, we featured the URISA 2012 closing keynote by Esri founder Jack Dangermond, where he highlighted how the GIS sector is poised for massive growth, and how collaboration will be a main driver for adoption and innovation.

Mr. Dangermond also discussed how new technologies are going to further extend GIS into the field, which will enable better and faster decision-making.   As a result organizations will be smarter with geospatial technologies serving as the underpinning for strategic growth.

In the second half of his keynote address, Mr. Dangermond dives deeper into how new cloud-based platforms will change how we collaborate and share data, which will also truly become “real time.”  And the near ubiquity of mobile devices and applications will drive more people to become more spatially aware.  The days of cumbersome GIS systems, which could only be used by a handful of trained professionals, are going by the wayside.

A big driver of change in the geospatial sector is advanced data analytics, which will re-imagine the whole premise of GIS.  We will have the software tools and analytics that will allow for pervasive geographic information to be used and accessed at all times.

Be sure to check out part two of Mr. Dangermond’s keynote address at URISA 2012 below.

URISA 2012 – Closing Keynote by Jack Dangermond (Part 1 of 2)

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Last year, Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA) held its GIS-Pro 2012 symposium, which featured a closing keynote by one of the most iconic leaders in the geospatial sector:  Esri founder Jack Dangermond.

Mr. Dangermond’s leadership and vision have stimulated the ongoing innovation of GIS technologies that have shaped our sector in profound ways.

In his URISA 2012 closing keynote address, Mr. Dangermond highlighted how the GIS sector is poised for massive growth with a more than a few million GIS professionals around the world.   Things will be changing dramatically over the next couple of years.

Driving this radical change is the core premise that GIS can create a better world by enhancing communication and collaboration.  New technologies are going to further extend GIS into the field, which will enable better and faster decision-making.   Organizations will be smarter with geospatial technologies serving as the underpinning for strategic growth.

Jack Dangermond Keynote Presentation at Ozri 2011

Monday, January 23rd, 2012

Hosted by Esri Australia, the market leader in Australia’s $2.1 billion spatial industry, Ozri has carved out a reputation as the Asia Pacific’s premier GIS event.

As one of the largest GIS conferences on the Asia Pacific spatial calendar, Ozri is the place for the industry to come together, collaborate, learn and be inspired.

In 2011, Ozri drew its largest crowd in its 25 year history, with more than 550 government, commercial and not-for-profit professionals from Australia, the Asia Pacific and the U.S.A descending on the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre for the event.

Jack Dangermond is an American business executive and environmental scientist. In 1969, he co-founded with his wife Laura the Environmental Systems Research Institute (Esri), a privately-held Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software company. In 2009, with an estimated net worth of $2 billion, Dangermond joined the Forbes 400 list of richest Americans.

Dangermond is the company’s President and Chief Executive Officer and works out of Esri’s headquarters in Redlands, California. Dangermond founded Esri to perform land use analysis, however its focus evolved into GIS software development, highlighted by the release of Arc/INFO in the early 1980s; the development and marketing of Arc/INFO positioned Esri with the dominant market share among GIS software developers. Today Esri is the largest GIS software developer in the world and its flagship product, ArcGIS traces its heritage to Dangermond’s initial efforts in developing Arc/INFO.
