NZEUC 2019 Complimentary Student Registrations

We are always wanting to help students of GIS.
This year we decided to offer the chance for our existing Student Members to attend the NZ Esri Users Conference for free.
Well, actually we will cover their registration costs.
Although most of our Student Members would like to attend, at times it’s not always possible.
But we are super excited to announce that Luke Sussex & Affan Rachman, both from AUT in Auckland, will now be attending NZEUC.
When asked how attending NZEUC would benefit them; they both agree about the power of networking and seeing GIS being used in real-world scenarios.
So, if you’re at NZEUC this year; and you meet Luke and Affan be sure to talk about what it is that you do and how you are applying the Science of Where.

2019 RUCs are complete!

We were lucky to have Joseph Kerski, Esri Education Manager attend 4 of our RUCs last month.
All be it a very busy schedule – Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin in just four days; Joseph shared his views on everything geospatial with over 400 RUC attendees collectively.
We seem to have made an impression on him as he put together this video after he left us.
Special thanks to Eagle Technology for supporting us to bring Joseph to Aotearoa.
