First Esri Forestry Workshops for NZ

In Issue29 by FIEA

To capitalise on those travelling through to Rotorua to attend the New Zealand leg of the ForestTECH 2019 series this year, two workshops have been set up for ForestTECH 2019 delegates by the specialist systems integration and information management company, Eagle Technology.

The first will run at the conference venue, the Distinction Hotel, the day before the two-day conference, on Monday 18 November. The second hands-on workshop runs the day after the conference on Thursday 21 November. As this second workshop is being run at a computer suite at Toi Ohomai, numbers will be restricted to 20 places.

Building on the Esri Platform demonstrated at the NZ Esri Users Conference in August, these forestry specific workshops have been designed to meet the growing interest from forestry companies across the country in using geospatial tools and workflows.

Both workshops run between 9.00am and 4.30pm. To attend, workshop delegates will have to have signed up for the ForestTECH 2019 conference. Registration to the workshops can be made whilst registering for the ForestTECH 2019 conference.
