  • 1:30 pm - 2:00 pm (AEDT) | The science of protecting and powering the blue economy

    Abstract

    Driven by one of the largest streams of observation data on earth, the United States’ National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is a global leader in their use of spatial analytics and GIS technology.

    In this presentation, Geospatial Information Officer Kim Valentine, Physical Scientist Mark Finkbeiner and Data Manager Randy Warren lift the curtain on how GIS serves as a foundational platform across NOAA’s three main service areas — weather, ocean, and national fisheries — to support the US Government’s environmental initiatives.

    From powering more than 1100 different weather forecast service products, to making thousands of their datasets available through Living Atlas of the World — NOAA will share rare insight into how they soar higher, dive deeper, and adventure further with the ArcGIS platform.
