Esri Sponsors Competition to Showcase App Development for City’s

REDLANDS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#ArcGISlt;/agt;–Esri,
the global leader in location intelligence, today announced that it will
sponsor the Mayor
Byron W. Brown’s Civic Innovation Eco Challenge at the Civic Innovation
on Saturday, March 9, in Buffalo, New York. The event will
include a hands-on workshop dedicated to building a sustainable Buffalo.
The Civic Innovation Eco Challenge seeks to generate ideas and submit
innovative projects that build on the City of Buffalo’s sustainability
efforts by harnessing the power of data and technology.

The Civic Innovation Eco Challenge will focus on how to make Buffalo a
better and greener place to live, work, and play. The hands-on workshop
will inform participants about the competition, conduct a brainstorm of
solutions, and empower attendees to learn how to best use technology to
improve Buffalo’s local community for today and tomorrow. Esri will
conduct a workshop from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. on ArcGIS for Developers,
a full suite of tools and resources for building mapping and advanced
analytics solutions. Developers use ArcGIS APIs to create location-based
web and native applications for desktop and mobile devices.

“Esri is honored to be chosen as one of the sponsors for this event,”
says Gerard Aiken, Esri account manager. “Our location intelligence
solutions are used by cities across the globe, and sponsoring the Civic
Innovation Eco Challenge gives us the opportunity to continue our
history of supporting innovation across the public sector, especially by
educating users about our developer tools.”

ArcGIS for Developers provides an enhanced mapping experience that is
now more accessible and affordable. Changes include a pay-as-you-go plan
for all of Esri’s location-based services, a decrease in the price of
transaction routing solutions, and a new commercial app deployment
experience for developers.

Esri will award Civic Innovation Eco Challenge participants up to 50
developer voucher certificates—each worth 1,000 credits—that will grant
access to Esri’s developer tools at no cost to teams. A grand prize
winner will also be awarded $1,000 for best use of the Esri platform.
