Eoghan Hennessy

Project Manager, Esri

I am a project manager specialising in the delivery of real-time spatial data solutions using GIS technology within the transport sector. I’ve worked with Transport Scotland over the last 2 years to improve how they interact with, visualise, and convey location information. I’ve been in the GIS industry for almost nine years, three of which with Esri, who create the most powerful mapping and and spatial data analytics software. My belief is that by making data more accessible, visible, and contextual, smarter decisions can be made leading to better outcomes for any application.
