How Is GIS Being Used?

Read presentations from the 2009 Esri International User Conference.

Geospatial analysis is essential for planning that encompasses the demands of building a hydroelectric dam, planting urban trees to cool down a city, or establishing guidelines for the protection of habitat. GIS tools are essential for performing geospatial analysis.

Environmental planning scenarios include
  • Waste management plan for best treatment and disposal site location, most efficient routes for fleet, and analysis of impact on public and land
  • Disaster management response plan for a toxic spill that includes impact areas, infrastructure, what-if scenarios, escape routes, and responder centers
  • Vegetation management plan for a right-of-way corridor that includes a schedule of planting and cutting and generates regulatory compliance reports
