The most recent worldwide Esri User Conference was held in San Diego where our Steve Abley was invited to present on law and enforcement and specifically the integration of GIS and speed cameras. This international work is furthering our reputation in the area of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and links nicely with the Ministry of Transport’s action plan for ITS ‘Transport in the digital age’ that was released in mind June.
We are proud to announce that Natalie Scott has recently been awarded Esri Technical Certification, which recognises superior skill levels utilising Esri’s software for geographic information systems (GIS). Natalie was awarded the ArcGIS Desktop Associate Certification. Natalie's accomplishment demonstrates the level of GIS knowledge and professional expertise that Abley stands for. To earn Esri Technical Certification, candidates have to successfully pass an examination that assesses knowledge and skills cultivated through their years of GIS experience.
