Report on the Esri User Conference 2022

Lillian and Jay were fortunate to attend the 2022 Esri User Conference in-person, following two years of virtual user conferences.  They will share an overview of the technical sessions they attended, their networking, and other conference activities.  The week-long conference attendance of 14,000+ GIS practitioners from all over the world was down from past conferences typically having more than 18,000 attendees.  A digital attendance option was available and drew many people. The User Conference offered 1000+ technical sessions and 400+ training hours, on using ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Enterprise and ArcGIS Pro, server and geodatabase administration, 3D GIS, field data collection applications, feature and label editing, local government solutions, Arcade scripting language and StoryMaps.
