GIS for Real Estate Market Expansion
To gain insight into new and unfamiliar markets, Texas-based real estate firm Stellar Development needed to do extensive analysis on prospective expansions. The company reached out to Datastory Consulting—which serves a variety of real estate professionals, including developers, brokers, investors, and managers in small and large organizations—to get the ArcGIS platform implemented. With some creative thinking plus ArcGIS Online, Stellar Development is now able to curate large amounts of government information alongside the business and demographic data provided by Esri. Employees around the innovative company now use maps and analytics to make smarter decisions. Learn more.
Managing Thousands of Fields Offline
For years, Southern Minnesota Beet Sugar Cooperative (SMBSC), a farmer-owned beet sugar producer, collected crop information, tracked activities, and managed contracts for more than 100,000 acres of planted fields using all-terrain vehicles, Toughbook laptops, and various applications. Ensuring well-maintained and accurate data was difficult due to inadequate Internet connectivity in rural locations. So Pro-West & Associates, which provides highly specialized GIS and data management consulting, worked with SMBSC to migrate its projects to ArcGIS Online and Collector for ArcGIS. With offline data collection, on-demand data synchronization, and GPS streaming, the cooperative greatly improved its efficiency. Learn more.
