Events > GIS and Web Cartography by Jack Dangermond

The British Cartographic Society hosted ‘GIS and Web Cartography’ by Jack Dangermond (Founder and President, ESRI) at the Royal Air Force Club, London on Friday 25th October 2013

A landscape architect by training, Jack Dangermond founded Environmental Systems Research Institute (Esri) in 1969 with a vision that computer mapping and analysis could help us design a better future. Under Dangermond’s leadership, that vision has continued to guide Esri in creating cutting-edge GIS and GeoDesign technologies used in every industry to make a difference worldwide.

Dangermond fostered the growth of Esri from a small research group to an organization recognized as the world leader in GIS software development. Esri employs 2,700 people in the USA; many who shared his passion for GIS in the early days are still with the company and remain dedicated to helping users be successful.

If you were unable to attend, or want a reminder on some of the topics Jack raised, please view his slideshow below.
