5 Reasons to Register Early for FutureView 2018

CONNECTExplorer in Appraiser Hunter

With 2018 almost upon us, the end of the year is the perfect time to put together your to-do list for the next 12 months. One thing to consider adding: new ways to grow and innovate in your role as a government employee.

If you assess properties, coordinate GIS resources for local agencies, respond to emergencies, or work in another department that relies heavily on technology, the imagery and data you use on a daily basis has to meet your needs.

EagleView brings Pictometry® imagery and solutions to agencies to help them answer questions about millions of properties throughout the world. What you might not know is that we also provide continued support and training.

FutureView is the advanced training and user conference for Pictometry imagery users. From August 27 to 30, 2018, attendees will experience a Resolution Revolution and learn how high-resolution aerial imagery and data analytics gives them the answers they need to make empowered decisions.

Frank Giuffrida, EagleView Executive Vice President and Chief Engineer, explains how Pictometry imagery brings answers to government agencies at FutureView 2017.

5 Reasons to Register for FutureView 2018:

1. You get to visit Austin, Texas!

Downtown Austin, with the JW Marriott in the center.

Isn’t that reason enough? In Austin, you’ll have plenty to do and see when you’re not hearing about best practices from your peers.

2. You’ll discover best practices from others in your field.

Wendy Grams, the Chief Appraiser for the Central Appraisal District of Bandera County, Texas, explained how imagery helps assessors see past locked gates in rural Texas at FutureView 2017.

One of the best parts about FutureView is that you can learn from others who have encountered the same issues and seen triumphs by using Pictometry imagery and solutions. Past FutureView attendees have returned to their offices with new ideas to implement based on what they heard in our speaker sessions.

But we recommend doing more than listening. Talk to the presenters whose advice resonated with you most and exchange contact information. Making connections at FutureView gives your department another valuable resource in addition to our technical trainers and local sales teams.

3. You can take a hands-on approach in the training sessions.

Last year, Kristy Dalton—a.k.a. GovGirl—spoke at FutureView 2017 about the importance of social media for government agencies when it comes to communicating with the public. She recommended being informative while also using humor and making emotional connections with those followers.

The assessment office in Santa Fe County, New Mexico, took her advice. This spring, they created a Crocodile Hunter parody to demonstrate the work their appraisers do out in the field and in the office with Pictometry imagery.
