GEO Jobe Video – Discussing ArcGIS Open Data with Andrew Turner, CTO Esri R&D

While attending the 2017 Esri DevSummit our @gletham had a brief meetup with Andrew Turner of Esri. Recall, Andrew (@ajturner on Twitter) is the CTO of Esri’s R&D Center in Washington D.C. Andrew’s work focuses on cross-domain collaboration and democratizing the map making process creating open tools for cartography and analysis. Enjoy this early morning chat to learn more about Esri’s Open Data solutions including the Open Data portal, options for Government and NGOs and the resources that are available to start down the path to more openness and engagement with citizens.
