Insight for a
Changing World

Together, science professionals and Esri have built a community of pioneers in technology and global change. For nearly half a century, we have worked together to develop applications and solutions that have pushed the boundaries of geographic science and opened the world to the possibilities of powerful geospatial technologies. By continuing our work together, we can bring about the kind of change our global community needs for generations to come.

Who We Are

Earth Observation

Content from Esri’s Living Atlas and your imagery and raster data together provide a comprehensive database of imagery resources for in depth analysis. Collecting, analyzing, sharing, and managing your information is easy through ArcGIS. Managing and analyzing large image collections is one of the many things ArcGIS does.

Science of Where

ArcGIS into a comprehensive geospatial platform by scientists for scientists. Supports research, spatial analysis, visualization, open data, and communication of science, all at multiple scales.

Learn more

Open Platform

ArcGIS is an Open Platform. It supports open standards, open APIs and direct COTS integration. This is evident by the fact that ArcGIS is integrated into thousands of systems. Esri has many hundreds of developers building and delivering open source applications.

Content and Processing

Landsat Explorer

Use this app to draw on Landsat's different bands to better explore the planet's geology, vegetation, agriculture, and cities. Additionally, access the entire Landsat archive to visualize how the Earth's surface has changed over the last forty years.

Arctic DEM Explorer

This web application allows users to explore an interactive map of Alaska and toggle among data visualizations, like renderings of hillshades, slope, aspect, contours, and offers tools to compute elevation profiles as well as changes in height based on the temporal component of the data.

Global Mountain Explorer

Allows for visualization and query of three global mountains raster data layers: a global mountains raster by Kapos et al. (2000), known as K1, a second global mountains raster by Körner et al. (2011) known as K2, and a third global mountains raster as an extension of the Ecological Lands Units by Karagulle et al. (2017) known as K3.

Analysis

Ecological Marine Unit Explorer

Commissioned by GEO GEOSS Task EC-01-C1, this map displays critical information about marine environments. Clicking the points on the map enables you to explore the depth (vertical) profile of associated oceanographic information for the selected location. EMU’s are distinct and statistically categorized collection of 37 ecologically significant ocean water types.

The Ecological Tapestry of the World

View global ecosystem maps in unprecedented detail. It is a mosaic of almost 4,000 unique ecological areas called Ecological Land Units (ELUs) based on four factors that are key in determining the makeup of ecosystems.

Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM)

Allows for visualization and query of three global mountains raster data layers: a global mountains raster by Kapos et al. (2000), known as K1, a second global mountains raster by Körner et al. (2011) known as K2, and a third global mountains raster as an extension of the Ecological Lands Units by Karagulle et al. (2017) known as K3.
