AGU Recognizes Esri Contributions to Science

Esri Chief Scientist Will Present Honors Lecture about Esri’s Role in the Scientific Community.

Redlands, California—December 14, 2015—Dawn Wright, chief scientist at Esri, will deliver a named honors lecture at the 2015 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, December 14–18, at the Moscone Convention Center, San Francisco, California. The AGU Earth and Space Science Informatics Focus Group designated Wright to represent Esri in delivering the Leptoukh Lecture.

Esri is the GIS industry leader. AGU is among the world’s most well-respected Earth science scholarly organizations. Its Fall Meeting is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world. The Leptoukh Lecture award recognizes achievement in computational sciences, data sciences, and informatics that leads to advancements in the domain sciences

"This is a great honor and opportunity for Esri,” Wright said. “It allows us to describe how Esri’s continuing progress helps advance both data science and Earth science. Given the host of pressing issues facing the planet, such as the impact of climate change on human systems and the natural environment, Esri’s involvement with the scientific community is now more important than ever.”

The Leptoukh Lecture award was named for the late Dr. Greg Leptoukh, an Earth scientist at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. He was involved in many projects related to data quality and data provenance. The honors lecture’s purpose is to raise awareness of the often-overlooked computational and data advances that enable breakthroughs in domain science. It also fosters exceptional individuals to make continued contributions in informatics and data science.

Other Esri staff will be at the 2015 AGU Fall Meeting to describe and demonstrate web GIS, multidimensional scientific data and analysis, imagery, openness, and interoperability. They will also present the Living Atlas of the World.

The Leptoukh Lecture  Toward a Digital Resilience (with a Dash of Location Enlightenment) has been selected to be live streamed and recorded as part of the  AGU On-Demand program.

Session Date and Time: Tuesday, December 15; 2:40 PM–3:40 PM

Session Number: IN23F: Leptoukh Lecture

Location: Moscone West; 3014
