ArcGIS Online is a cloud-based, collaborative content management system for maps, apps, data, and other geographic information. The system enables users to easily create, manage, and share their maps and data as well as access a set of ready-to-use maps and data from other users.

6:15 – 7:00 Main Speakers – The State of Big Data for Geo
Guest speakers Sean Gorman, Chief Strategist and Andrew Turner, CTO both formerly of GeoIQ and new additions to the recently announced Esri Washington, D.C. R&D Center team join us todiscuss the State of Big Data for Geo and the difference between big data and traditional GIS. Sean and Andrew will explain how we’ve moved from early work applying geo-analytics to dynamic big data sources, like Twitter feeds and mobile event traffic, to today’s current efforts connecting to big data technologies such as MongoDB and Hbase. Join us to learn more about the latest trends in big data; the impact and challenges new technologies create for GIS; and the future possibilities and directions for Big Data and geo.
