AccuWeather Global Weather Center, July 14, 2014 -- AccuWeather Enterprise Solutions (AES) is partnering with leading Geographic Information System (GIS) solutions supplier Environmental Systems Research Institute (Esri) at the 2014 International User Conference, taking a leadership role to benefit this week's event. AccuWeather's Chief Commercial Officer Casey McGeever will serve as keynote speaker for the "Weather in GIS Track", while two other members of the AES team present at the Business Summit: Technology Plenary.
"This is a great opportunity for AccuWeather and Esri to give vital information on the future of weather mapping as it's being used by enterprises at the cutting edge of situational awareness and customized severe weather warnings for workers and the public," said Casey McGeever, Chief Commercial Officer for AccuWeather Enterprise Solutions. "In my keynote presentation, I will describe how the usage of superior weather data is evolving from descriptive, to predictive, and ultimately to prescriptive -- applying meteorological information to create competitive advantages and ultimately allow organizations to better protect People, Property, and Profits".
"Weather and GIS are a natural fit. GIS users need useful, real-time information quickly in order to move beyond traditional mapping, and towards supporting dynamic operations and situation awareness," Lawrie Jordan, Director of Imagery of Esri said in an interview on the company's blog. "The agenda is very rich, with several unique real-world weather use cases, and we're especially looking forward to the AccuWeather keynote".
In addition to McGeever's keynote presentation, two key AES team members participated in the Esri Business Summit: Technology Plenary.
