Travel

The Des Moines City Council recently approved GIS (geographic information systems) specialist Jeffrey Kuster and GIS manager Anna Whipple to travel to San Diego, Calif., from July 7 – 12, to attend the annual ESRI (Eastern Resources Inc.) International User Conference. ESRI is the city’s platform for Geographic Information Systems. The conference offers a full week of technical training sessions in hopes that it will keep Kuster and Whipple current on rapid advancements in GIS and geospatial technologies, which are widely used to support the business processes of several city departments. Each city employee was approved for $2,304 in travel expenses paid for by tax dollars. CV
