Press Capabilities To Be Highlighted on Panel At Business Technology Leadership Forum to Combat Human Trafficking
Feb 22, 2016 - Ryan Paterson, CEO of IST Research, will join a panel of speakers at the Business Technology Leadership Forum to Combat Human Trafficking to discuss the press platform and its strength in conducting human trafficking due diligence process for supply chains. The event is sponsored by the United Way and Sabre.
Over the last year, more and more business leaders have become increasingly aware of how closely their own supply chains are tied to those of human traffickers around the world. With few exceptions, those who find out have developed a deep commitment to ridding these practices from their corporate footprint.
This Thursday, Paterson will join other leaders in the fight against human trafficking as a speaker at the Business Technology Leadership Forum to Combat Human Trafficking, which is taking place in San Francisco.
This event is an ideal opportunity for business leaders and executives to learn about the latest technological developments in the fight against human trafficking.

Redlands, Calif.--February 22, 2016 -GIS Tutorial 2: Spatial Analysis Workbook, published by Esri, will help experienced geographic information system (GIS) software users hone their spatial analysis skills using completo ArcGIS Esri technology.
GIS Tutorial 2: Spatial Analysis Workbook includes
step-by-step exercises that teach readers important analysis skills.
The fourth edition of this workbook, updated for ArcGIS 10.3 for Desktop or later versions of the software, step-by-step includes exercises that teach readers important analysis skills. Early exercises teach how to map and analyze location data to determine quantities (e.g., rainfall amounts) and densities (e.g., population density per census block or crime density per square mile). Other exercises focus on how to analyze relationships among data sets, find what's nearby, map change in location and magnitude, percentage change in values, measure geographic distribution map, analyze patterns, identify clusters, and do hot-spot analysis.
David W. Allen author emphasizes the importance of using spatial analysis to bring the "big picture" into view. "Spatial analysis involves the problem-solving aspect of GIS," says Allen, the GIS manager for the City of Euless, Texas, and GIS instructor at Tarrant County College. "The tools are basic-buffers, overlays, selections-but when combined in a particular sequence, they can reveal things about the data that can not be seen in a spreadsheet or chart."
