Geodesign Summit Asks Attendees to Reimagine Their World

Hands-on Experience and Collaboration Will Fuel This Year's Event

REDLANDS, Calif., Oct. 2, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — GIS and design professionals, academics, and developers will gather at Esri headquarters in Redlands, California, January 24–25, 2013, for the fourth annual Geodesign Summit. The event is open to anyone working at the intersection of geography and design. This year's theme, Reimagine Your World, underscores how attendees can use geodesign to realize the best possible outcomes for both their projects and the planet.

"This year we're doing something a little different: we're giving attendees the chance to get hands-on experience working with the tools they've just seen presented. They can also explore solutions to some of the real-life project workflow issues they encounter every day," said Shannon McElvaney, global industry manager of community development at Esri. "No matter what your position—manager, academic, or analyst—you will find value in these sessions."

Attendees will have ample opportunity to participate, collaborate, and network with others in and across disciplines, helping to build the community of geodesign practitioners. Featured speakers, Lightning Talks, and enabling technology demonstrations will round out the summit.

One of the featured speakers is Frederick Steiner, dean of the University of Texas, Austin, School of Architecture. Steiner has worked with local, state, and federal agencies on diverse environmental plans and designs. His most recent books are Urban Ecological Design: A Process for Regenerative Places (coauthored with Danilo Palazzo) and Design for a Vulnerable Planet. His presentation, "Bushwick, You're Beautiful," describes how design can elevate our understanding of relationships in our surroundings and enable us to adapt to change accordingly.
