Course Change for the Arc Marine Data Model

By Dawn Wright (ESRI Chief Scientist) on September 12, 2014

..."As we increasingly focus on this new Geoinformation Model, while also considering our current resources and available staffing, we at Esri feel that the work of Dr. Celso Ferreira at George Mason University is actually making the most progress in advancing Arc Marine. For example, his lab has already developed its own geodatamodel and ArcGIS tools based on both Arc Marine and Arc Hydro for coastal flooding applications. We would thus like to point the community to Dr. Ferreira as a lead on Arc Marine, and we look forward to promoting and assisting his work where we can."
