Lawrie Jordan, director of imagery and remote sensing at ESRI in Redlands, Ca., was the speaker at the UGA College of Environment and Design convocation ceremony held today in the Fine Arts Theater. Jordan (appropriately attired in Georgia gear above) holds a BLA from CED, which he completed in 1973. He is also a graduate of the Harvard Graduate School of Design.

Jordan’s career has spanned almost 40 years and includes cutting edge research and application of GIS in environmental and civil projects across the globe. He serves as a special assistant to Jack Dangermond, president of ESRI, which builds ArcGIS (mapping and spatial analytics software). He has been an advisor to numerous government organizations on current trends involving imagery and satellite programs.

As a loyal alumnus of the CED, we welcome Lawrie Jordan back to campus and are honored to have him address the class of 2019.
