Christine White
Consultant/Project Manager, Esri

My research interests are spatial data infrastructure, with emphasis on the study of geography (B.S. and M.S. in Geography from University of South Carolina). I have worked at Esri in Redlands, CA for four years as a consultant, helping large organizations manage and share their spatial data. Last Fall, our company decided to release the Esri Geoportal Server product as 100% open source, under the Apache 2.0 license on sourceforge. Since then, I’ve enjoyed learning about and participating hands-on in the open source community, and being a contributer instead of just a beneficiary of open source solutions.

Sharing data is critical in a world where crisis can occur at any moment. Often, valuable data is stored in disparate locations with no information on how to access. This presentation discusses spatial data discovery and open source tools for implementing a data-sharing catalog. Esri’s Geoportal Server will be used to show sharing and discovery in action. Talk is open to all attendees. Read more.
