2017 Esri Regional User Conferences - it's a Wrap!

The Eagle Technology team recently completed the Regional User Conference (RUC) tour covering 11 NZ locations, 1 Fiji location and over 700 delegates.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated – presenters, organisers, networkers and delegates.  The feedback we’ve received is very positive and the events were a great success.

Technical Resources
A lot of technology information was shared at the RUCs, some of which may have been missed. Below is a list of resources you may find useful:

A selection of videos based on RUC demonstrations including ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Online Collaboration, Insights for ArcGIS and others. 

A Storymap illustrating how Sharing works using ArcGIS Online – a different, but equally interesting example to the one shown at the RUCs.

A 3D Storymap outlining the benefits of 3D visualisation for Development when planning for growth, designing new developments or reviewing design plans in your community.
