Sharpen Your Tools >> ACT16 GIS Track

Did you know that around 85% of Lucity clients own one of our GIS solutions? It is second to Lucity Work as the most-owned Lucity solution. That number shouldn’t be surprising if you consider the arsenal of tools you get when combining the power of Lucity with the power of GIS. It is for this reason we have dedicated a whole track at ACT to everything GIS.

We have expanded on the GIS track over the last few years to provide the most valuable experience to all our ACT attendees. Sure the GIS track contains many overview training sessions you would expect for end-users on the Lucity GIS solutions, but we also offer multiple sessions that are more focused on the setup and configuration typically done by GIS Administrators. The GIS track also contains client presentations…these sessions (as mentioned in our previous blog), are a great opportunity to see how other clients have implemented various GIS components and their lessons learned. If that wasn’t enough, since Lucity is an Esri business partner, there will be an Esri representative on-site to provide insight to the latest happenings over at Esri. As with every ACT we really enjoy the opportunity to showcase our latest developments in GIS while at the same time providing a forum for our clients where they can provide valuable enhancement recommendations for future development!

Here’s a brief description for each of the tentative GIS sessions for ACT16:
