Esri to Launch the Urban Observatory
Esri, and founder Jack Dangermond are collaborating with Richard Saul Wurman, the founder of the TED Conference, for an online Urban Observatory that compares key indicators about cities. The Urban Observatory is visioned as a living museum of data about cities and countries with information on urbanization, healthcare policy, education, crime and other data presented in a digital format on an integrative platform that takes advantage of the power of Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
There is a call out now for participants to share data for this integrative data display that will be live at the Esri International User Conference this July in San Diego. View the short video below for an overview about the project.
