Our second Tweet4Trees sponsor is our friends over at ESRI. Our Tweet4Trees campaign is part of our fourth anniversary celebration and is a pledge to recognize our listeners and readers by donating to tree planting charities based on the number of twitter followers we have as of our 4th anniversary episode on July 15. It is also a pledge to support the environment where we can. ESRI has clearly shown their support for environmental change over the years in numerous ways including support for the Society for Conservation GIS, recognition of the Green Belt Movement, this year’s ESRI International User Conference keynote by Willie Smits entitled “Designs for the Environment: Rebuilding Forests”. These are just a few of the ways ESRI has supported awareness of the environment.
Since 1969, ESRI® has been giving customers around the world the power to think and plan geographically. The market leader in GIS, ESRI software is used in more than 300,000 organizations worldwide including each of the 200 largest cities in the United States, most national governments, more than two-thirds of Fortune 500 companies, and more than 7,000 colleges and universities. ESRI applications, running on more than one million desktops and thousands of Web and enterprise servers, provide the backbone for the world’s mapping and spatial analysis. ESRI is the only vendor that provides complete technical solutions for desktop, mobile, server, and Internet platforms. Visit us at www.esri.com.
While we most often focus on ESRI’s software on the podcast and blog, they offer a wealth of options including training, professional services, enterprise support, customization, and others to support end-user needs. These services are conducted and supported by a group of great folks as we have found out over the last few years in interviews and conversations with ESRI employees.
We would like to thank ESRI for supporting our Tweet4Trees campaign and for helping us to make it to four years.
