This year’s National User Group features, for the first time, our new interactive product workshops. I’m running the session which invites your thoughts on enhancing the level of functionality in those modules which already have GIS functionality, as well as expanding its use to those modules that don’t currently utilise this technology.
What to expect
The aim of the workshop is two-fold. Firstly to look at the current addressing and GIS functionality in One and provide some top tips on how you can get the most out of these areas. Secondly to discuss our plans for extending the remit of GIS throughout One and to establish what you would find particularly useful. I’ll be asking you questions and encouraging discussion around this.
How to get the most from the workshop
It would be useful if you could give some thought to the following areas prior to the workshop:
- What would you particularly like to map within your local authority? I’d be interested in your wishlist.
- What else would you like GIS to be able to do? (apart from making the tea of course!)
Everything you wanted to know about GIS terminology but were too afraid to ask
Abbreviations are an occupational hazard of technology areas and I’m afraid GIS is no exception to this. I know how difficult this can make it to understand any conversations about the subject so please send me any GIS abbreviations & terminology you’re not sure about and I will give you an explanation – in plain English. Alternatively, please don’t hold back from asking me their meaning during the session at the National User Group.
What happens next
We’ll be listening hard to your views so we can factor these in to our product development roadmap and better meet your changing needs. In addition to talking to many of you at our National User Group, we’ll also be seeking views from customers via our online forums and our software consultative groups.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to consider these key areas and I very much look forward to meeting you at the National User Group later this month.
