Bill Miller worked at Esri for 15 years—re-engineering their training program, initiating Esri Press, and developing Esri’s virtual campus—while also leading several product development efforts. A recent article from Esri talk about Mr. Miller's background, what inspires him, and why he loves geodesign.
"Miller challenges us to embrace this larger view of geodesign and encourages educators to go beyond the two-dimensional domain of regional planning. The broader application potential of geodesign exceeds the traditional boundaries of urban and regional planning."
At the 2017 Esri Users conference in San Diego, Miller remarked: "If you want to learn about geodesign, Penn State is the best way to do it."
