Announcement: The Geospatial Information & Technology Association Webinars are Happening!

Wait What?

In the last five years, the fields of Augmented Reality and ArcGIS have merged together to create a beautiful fusion of visual functionality that is influencing the way field technicians and other specialists are able to work. While this ground-breaking tech is making waves in the media and being hinted at in movies, many wonder: is this here, right now? Is it real? GITA is happy to announce a series of two webinars that focus on answering these questions, explaining the tech propelling this change, and how the Argis Lens technology is a catalyst for some big changes. But that's just the beginning. Other technologies such as drones, machine learning, alternative interfaces for different types of AR and more play a part, too. We invite you to join us in exploring these intriguing topics with us! 

Part One

Part One of the webinar series will focus on the future of Augmented Reality and GIS. The technology in this space is fairly new and still being developed, and we’ve heard about it in the news and in the movies. However, many wonder: is the reality of AR and ArcGIS here yet? The answer is an enthusiastic yes! We invite you to learn about the Argis Lens and how this revolutionary, patented technology has already merged these two things to create an incredibly useful, versatile product that is changing the way field technicians and specialists in other areas go about their work. Take a look underneath its streamlined design to see how its complex technology generates a three-dimensional element in real time with depth and volume based on simple symbology included in an ArcGIS feature service. Get a glimpse of how this AR and field mobility tech is changing how GIS managers communicate data with field-based operations. 

Part One will be held on Thursday, Sep 13, 2018 from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM MDT. You can register for it here

Part Two

Part Two of the webinar series will detail how important the role of Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and Immersion Reality will be in the future, since it will be influencing and determining  how we view and analyze spatial data. We invite you to join our discussion of how UAV / Drones, Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Alternative Interfacing and the arrival of xR (Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Mixed Reality) will influence our future. Some will make an impact sooner than others; come learn what you need to know to make informed decisions about this new technology.  

Part Two will be on Thursday, Sep 27, 2018 from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM MDT. You can register for part two here.
