Dale Loberger works as a solution advisor with ESRI business partners out of the Charlotte office covering the southeastern states. Although his formal undergraduate and graduate education is in natural resource management, he has over twenty years of GIS implementation experience in many diverse application areas. Since joining ESRI in 1990, Mr. Loberger has held many technical and consulting roles, but frequently works with organizations related to utilizing GIS technology to improve decision making regarding the conservation of resources at many levels. In 2004, he earned his GISP certification and currently serves on the GISCI Oversight Committee to help promote the GIS profession. Prior to working at ESRI, he worked as part of a GIS software development team and later established a GIS department for a forest management consultant here in Charlotte. Most of his time now is spent experimenting with the new releases of ArcGIS software and speaking with developers and clients about how to take the best advantage of this technology.
