Apply geographic science to build a better world.

A seismic shift in how the global community tackles poverty, inequality, and environmental issues has taken place with a new sustainable development framework—the Sustainable Development Goals. At the crux of making better decisions is having accurate geographic information about people and the planet. As a member of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data, Esri is committed to supplying geospatial tools and data to support the global community in the quest for sustainability.



Merge credible data about people and the planet in maps to see patterns and trends. Better understand how vulnerable populations are affected.


Use geospatial tools to model and automate scenarios. See the potential impacts of your work to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, even before implementation.


Apply GIS as a fundamental tool to understand global challenges. Plan for, design, implement, and monitor programs to achieve the global goals.
