Planning, operating, and sustaining educational institutions is complex. Whether a higher education campus or a K-12 school district, the work is multifaceted. Demographic analysis, campus operations, transportation, facilities management, safety, master planning, and stakeholder communications are among the tasks. While often unseen, all of these fixed and moving parts have locations, a geography. By integrating key data and systems with Esri GIS for a location-based perspective, administrators better see and serve their campuses and the people connected to them.

Planning for education institutions is a spatial act. It involves leaders and patrons. Learn more about GIS for master planning.
Campuses and districts are like little cities—large grounds, brick-and-mortar structures, integrated systems. Knowing “where” is critical.
An educational institution’s stakeholders are wide and varied. Like its leaders, they also demand easy and insightful information access.
ArcGIS for Desktop provides education administrators with powerful data visualization, analysis, and integration capabilities that are being applied in administration areas of all kinds, including demographic planning, transportation, facilities management, and safety programs.
