Geocoding

From simple data analysis to business and customer management to distribution techniques, there is a wide range of applications for which geocoding can be used. With geocoded addresses, you can spatially display the address locations and recognize patterns within the information. This can be done by simply looking at the information or using some of the analysis tools within ArcGIS for Desktop.

Map Projections

Map Projections

With a vast selection of projected and geographic coordinates systems, ArcGIS for Desktop allows you to integrate datasets from disparate sources into a common framework. You can easily merge data, perform various analytic operations, and produce extremely accurate, professional quality maps.

Advanced Imagery

There are many ways you can work with image data (raster data) in ArcGIS for Desktop. You can use it as a background (basemap) to analyze other data layers, apply different types of specifications to the image dataset, or use it as part of the analysis.
