Please join us for the first Spatial Technology Lunch of Winter Quarter on Thursday, January 29, from 12:00 – 1:00 pm in Phelps Hall room 3512. This semi-regular series, hosted by spatial@ucsb, aims to promote discussion and interaction across the university’s spatial technology community.

UCSB Geography alumni and current Esri Support Analysts Scott Prindle and Thomas Jensen will present “Storytelling with maps, a demonstration of ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Online integration”.


A workflow will be demonstrated to show compilation of data to be authored in ArcGIS Pro as a hosted feature service in ArcGIS Online. The hosted feature service will then be added to a web map and incorporated in a web application for added functionality. The finished product will then then be shared. This scenario is useful when the geoprocessing power of ArcGIS Pro is needed to create data, but the ease and speed of sharing through ArcGIS Online need to be leveraged.


Scott is an alumnus of UCSB’s geography and psychology undergraduate programs and has been an Esri Support Analyst for the past 4 years specializing in Server and Online technologies.

Thomas is an alumnus of UCSB’s geography graduate program and has been an Esri support analyst for the past year and a half. He specializes in raster, 3D analyst, spatial analyst, and LiDAR issues.

For anyone who may be interested in working for Esri, Scott and Thomas will be accepting résumés.

Feel free to invite interested friends and colleagues. Pizza and drinks will be served. Please RSVP to Kitty Currier by Wednesday, January 28.
