A Conversation with Skye Perry about Esri's Utility Network

Skye Perry is my guest on the first episode of Speaking of GIS.  As a replacement for the geometric network, the Utility Network brings lots of opportunities for new technology to utilities.  It also brings a lot of change, which we talk about.
