Esri telecom GIS heroes inspire

These heroes are leaders within the GIS community and true GIS champions. As proven problem solvers, they have gained deep respect from colleagues. Their genuine love of this technology inspires others to imagine how GIS can help them achieve their own ambitious goals. Join us in celebrating these industry leaders who are making a difference in the telecom community every day. Eric Carroll was recently recognized as one of these inspiring people.

Mapping utilities infrastructures from legacy systems can be daunting and problematic by nature. IT manager Eric and team at the University of Kentucky have streamlined the workflow for field data collection to build an intelligent utilities and telecommunications network by leveraging multiple Esri technologies, and custom extensions, to design, organize and field collect large datasets. The result is a logical network that garners the power and analytic capabilities of the ArcGIS Utility Network Platform.
