Among the attendees at ESRI's International User Conference 2003 were (left to right) Dawn J. Wright (Oregon State University), Glynn F. Williams (USGS, Woods Hole, MA), and Florence L. Wong (USGS, Menlo Park, CA).

The ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institute) International User Conference was held in San Diego, CA, from July 7-11, 2003. This excellent conference offered lectures, technical workshops, and demonstrations of the latest techniques in geographic information systems (GIS), including several sessions emphasizing marine science.

Attendees at the conference were left with a vivid impression of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) as a leader in science and a generous host of large geospatial data sets. In fact, the USGS presence was positively felt at the ESRI conference, where USGS participants won awards in several categories.

In addition, the USGS information booths and " Earth as Art" exhibit were well received and gained attention from USGS peers and other attendees.

At the closing plenary session's question-and-answer period, it became evident that the role of the USGS is unquestionably relevant to providing sound viable solutions to problems that affect land and people.
