Esri India UC 2019 to focus on GIS for ‘New India’

The central government’s ‘New India’ vision is a movement to transform the nation by 2022. It is a novel initiative that envisions an India which is clean, healthy, secure, inclusive and robust.

The government has designed several plans like Digital India, Smart Cities and Skill Development to create a sustainable base for taking this development into the next decade. Geospatial technology provides real-time data and an efficient processing system that facilitates effective, efficient and informed decision-making. Integration of geospatial technology in the ‘New India’ vision will enable the development of applications that have the potential to revolutionize workflows across industries.

Keeping this in view, the Esri India User Conference (UC) 2019 has designed its theme “GIS — Creating Vision for a New India” with an aim to explore how the nation can leverage GIS (Geographic Information System) and other technologies to shape the vision.

The Esri UC is the biggest gathering of GIS professionals united by a common goal of making our world a better place through innovative applications of GIS technology. Esri GIS users from across sectors gather to learn, network and share their experiences. This is ‘THE’ conference to discover what’s new in GIS technology & data; network with your peers; and stay connected to this exciting & vibrant industry.

Like every year, this year too, the User Conference experience is reaching out to three cities of India – Hyderabad, Kolkata and Delhi National Capital Region. In the conference, leading Esri and industry experts will showcase innovative, real-world GIS applications.
