Photographer Kristina Jacob shares moments she captured from the 2014 Esri International User Conference that was recently held during July in San Diego, California. One of the largest GIS conferences in the world, the Esri UC played host to over 15,000 attendees from around the world.
The Esri International User Conference is a wonderful place to see the new and exciting ways to use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to solve problems. Every year, Esri users from around the world descend upon the San Diego Convention Center to attend sessions, walk the huge exhibitor showcase, be inspired by beautiful cartography in the Map Gallery, and to network with other GIS professionals and students.
Below are some of the sights that I captured through my lens at this year’s conference.
