The Contributions of Geospatial Science and Technology to Climate Change

The Contributions of Geospatial Science and Technology to Climate Change

June 22nd, 2022 1:00pm EST   Virtual, ON24

We welcome Dr. Lorraine Tighe, Director of Earth Sciences Solutions at Esri as our Fireside Chat guest.  Dr. Tighe oversees expanding the use of Esri software and technologies across Earth sciences disciplines, to include geoscience, environmental, climate, weather, and marine sciences. GIS helps absorb the immense amount of Earth observation data about what's occurring on our planet and helps make sense of its meaning. GIS in Earth Sciences enables users to advance science-driven understanding of climate change, resources management, and environmental challenges to help decision-makers create sustainable solutions that positively impact the world. This chat with Lorraine Tighe will discuss her role, where Esri is advancing Earth sciences, and what we can expect in the future as Esri continues to evolve their mission to help organizations gain guidance, insight, and information from geospatial data to ensure a more sustainable Earth.
