    GIS and Geospatial sciences have been solving many of our critical problems such as Smart use of Energy, sustainable natural resources, health researches and many other things now GIS is enabling us to tell stories by maps, and even visualize future forecasts that's amazing but a good cartography is essential for a good story map, and of course good accurate data is a must. Thank you ESRI, and I am waiting for the speech and the papers.
