Auckland Council had the opportunity to present to 15,000 people from 130 countries around the globe at the Esri User Conference in San Diego this week.
Esri is mapping software used by Auckland Council's Geospatial team.
Ian Smith, the former Web, Mobile & Geospatial Manager at Auckland Council, presented 'Enterprise GIS Enables Smart Communities' on the main stage.
In 2015 Auckland Council was presented with an Esri Special Achievement in GIS Award (SAG). This global acknowledgement from Esri President Jack Dangermond was to recognise the outstanding work of the team from a pool of more than 100,000 organisations using Esri software throughout the world. This year's elevation to the main stage is an endorsement of that award.
