ESRI virtual globes reception

Attendees to the Association of American Geographers meeting are invited to a reception sponsored by ESRI, on Thursday, March 9. The ESRI reception will follow the virtual globes panel, so we expect the reception to start at ~6:30-6:45pm. ESRI is providing hors d'oeuvres and drinks. In fact, ESRI has done it right...they are providing heavy hors d'oeuvres and an open bar! Place: Palmer House Hilton Crystal Room. The reception will last about an hour, and the open bar closes at 7:45pm. Come take the opportunity to chat with the panelists and others interested in virtual globes technology.

We'd like to thank ESRI for all the support of the AAG2006 Virtual Globes activities!

At 7:45pm--immediately following the reception--you are invited to stick around the Crystal Room for virtual globe demonstrations by NASA and EarthSLOT. The demonstrations will be led by Tom Gaskins, Director of Learning Technologies for NASA, and Matt Nolan, leader of the EarthSLOT project (a virtual globe built upon Skyline technology and designed for research and education).
