U.S. Census Bureau’s Tim Trainor to Speak at ESRI International User Conference

      Attendees Will Learn How GIS Is Used to Collect and Manage Information That Impacts the Lives of Millions

Redlands, California—July 9, 2009— Attendees at the 2009 ESRI International User Conference (ESRI UC) will hear from Tim Trainor, chief, Geography Division, United States Census Bureau, during the event’s Plenary Session. Trainor will discuss how geographic information system (GIS) technology is enabling the Census Bureau to efficiently collect quality data about the nation’s people and economy.

Through Trainor’s presentation, attendees will gain insight into the enormity of the Census Bureau’s data collection process. They will also learn how ESRI’s GIS software is being used as a critical tool throughout the Census Bureau to prepare for and execute census surveys, both in the office and in the field. A large part of the Census Bureau’s responsibilities, such as collecting, tabulating, and disseminating statistical data, has some core relationship to geography. Therefore, the Census Bureau relies on GIS to help manage this essential data that is used to make decisions that impact the lives of millions. The Census Bureau predicts that more than 44 million unique maps of data will be produced during the 2010 census.

“The amount of geographic information the Census Bureau is responsible for collecting, analyzing, and sharing with our nation is amazing,” said ESRI president Jack Dangermond. “I look forward to hearing more about the Census Bureau’s work and am thrilled that Tim Trainor will be at the conference to share how GIS is helping accomplish such a critical task.”

The ESRI UC, the world’s largest conference devoted to GIS technology, will be held July 13–17 at the San Diego Convention Center in California. The conference draws thousands of users from across the globe who come together to learn, collaborate, and discover the latest developments in GIS.

The conference theme this year is GIS: Designing Our Future. Trainor joins biologist WiIlie Smits and economist Hernando de Soto, other keynote speakers. To find out more about the ESRI UC and registration, visit www.esri.com/uc.
