Equip learners, educators and administrators with 21st-century tools.

Esri’s GIS software magnifies efficiency and understanding. Researchers use it to evaluate and map data from many sources to create new theories and models. Students can enhance classroom assignments by applying mapping technology and visualization tools to them. At the administrative level, GIS is used to monitor facilities and assets. And everyone can share information through engaging web maps and apps.

"Using GIS as a decision-making tool is a smart way of gathering all the things you already know and placing them in a single spot so you can see the entire picture."

Tom McCaffrey, GIS coordinator, University of Calgary
