Real-Time GIS

Make Better Decisions the Moment Something Happens

Real-time GIS analyzes sensor data and other live feeds, then puts it on interactive maps for real-time decision-making.

  • Provide better situational awareness of everything from storage of perishable commodities, to monitoring water quality, to safe energy transfer.
  • Improve your response times in law enforcement and fire incidents, during shipping and delivery, and when time, location, or environmentally-sensitive situations involve financial risk.
  • Track dynamic assets that are constantly changing location (such as vehicles, aircraft, or vessels), or stationary assets, such as weather and environmental monitoring stations.
  • Help make sense of massive amounts of dynamic data, including Big Data.

“When assets are geographically dispersed or mobile, merging space and time dimensions to visualize operational data has immense benefits for making real-time decisions.”

Martin Otterson, Senior Vice President at OSIsoft, Esri Partner

Who Uses Real-Time GIS?

Real-time GIS is used by many organizations. Here's a few examples:

Dong Energy, a leading renewable energy group, will be operating more than 1,800 offshore wind turbines by 2020.

DHL Express is one of the world's largest shippers, handles more than 30 million items with a fleet of about 1,500 vehicles.

Port of Rotterdam, one of the busiest ports in the world, handles more than 130,000 vessels and processes 440 million tons of cargo.

OSIsoft, a global leader in operational intelligence, enables businesses to leverage sensor-based data across their enterprises.

AccuWeather, the leading global weather info provider, uses tens of thousands of new data elements per hour to predict weather patterns.

Valarm, a startup, creates apps and sensor-enabled devices that do everything from optimizing truck routes to tracking humidity in vineyards.
