PRESENTATION: Yes, Queries Can Be Spatial, Too
AUTHORS: Michael Olkin*, Springfield Water & Sewer Commission

ABSTRACT: Did you know that it's possible to conduct the most common types of spatial analysis without using any ArcGIS geoprocessing tools? Thanks to Esri's adoption of Open Geospatial Consortium data specifications, the power of spatial queries are available within geodatabases stored in relational databases (SQL Server, Oracle, SQLite, PostgreSQL, etc). In this presentation, we'll explore several ways to unleash the power of spatial queries in Microsoft SQL Server. Examples will include results displayed both in ArcGIS Desktop/Pro and in web/mobile map apps.

PRESENTATION: Demystifying Data Science and Putting it to Work for Geospatial Projects
AUTHORS: Guido Stein, Applied Geographics, Inc.

ABSTRACT: Why is data science becoming the new hipster of analysis? Can data science be a tool you can use for problem solving? How can you become a geospatial data scientist? Guido Stein will share his take on data science and how to answer questions geospatially using a data science approach. You will learn to use Jupyter, Python, and CartoFrames to process geospatial data and run experiments. Using these tools you will learn why Jupyter notebooks are core to building and sharing analysis across organizations and teams. It's not rocket science, it's data science.
