While I was at the Esri 2015 user conference, I had the privilege of meeting with Jim Baumann, one of Esri’s writers, and shared with him the story of what we do in ExCiteS. Esri has been a big supporter of our work and is a pioneer in Citizen Science initiatives using geospatial technologies, so they decided to publish an article about us in the Winter 2016 edition of ArcNews:
It is a continuing honour to work with the brilliant people that I work with and I’m happy to be contributing to projects that seek to help communities in various causes.
