Esri and ACSM Shape New Event for Surveyors and Mapping Professionals

— August 02, 2010

Esri and the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping announced the formation of its Survey Summit. The inaugural event will take place next summer, July 9-12, 2011. The event is designed for surveyors who are interested in geospatial technologies to explore the newest technology trends, workflows, equipment, and business opportunities in surveying and related fields. The summit will also provide training and networking opportunities. According to both organizers, the event will serve as the ideal forum for anyone interested in geographic information system (GIS) technology, as well as emerging technologies such as lidar, and 3D scanning, to better equip their organizations to serve emerging markets. "ACSM has served as a voice of land surveyors and mappers for over 70 years," says Brent Jones, Esri's surveying, cadastral, and land records industry manager. "As the surveying and geospatial industries continue to make technological advances together, it makes sense that the professionals of these related fields join together at one premier conference. We're excited to have ACSM as part of the Survey Summit. It's a must-attend event for the surveying community, as it provides access to the pinnacle of technology available to surveyors and mappers."
