The KAM Education Committee is pleased to announce the first in what we hope to be several free "lunch and learn" online events to share information and promote networking throughout the year. Our first presentation is on Esri's Field Maps app, which is available now and is replacing Collector for ArcGIS. (Collector retires at the end of 2021, so if you are using it, you need to make plans to migrate to Field Maps!)
If you have ideas for a lunch and learn topic that you'd like to attend, please let us know!
Have you heard about the new data collection tool that was recently released from ESRI – Esri Field Maps?
Please join Seiler Geospatial and ESRI in this joint webinar to learn about the all-in-one data collection application ESRI Field Maps. With the help of Jeff Shaner from ESRI, he will help to introduce us to the new data collection tool ESRI Field Maps. Whether you are an existing ESRI user or looking for a data collection tool, this will be a webinar you do not want to miss!
Registration is free for the webinar and is required.

Join GeoDev KC on Thursday October 8th when Vinicius Grassi & Austin Wheat presents on the tools from HERE Technologies.
HERE has some fantastic free/open source web GIS tools (both studio and developer versions) GIS peeps and developers can use. We could give a presentation on our studio tool and our APIs, give the group few demos of what they can do with the tools, and get them set up with a freemium HERE account to play around with.
