Evaluating Impacts

Understand the impacts of climate change

Build a detailed picture of potential climate hazards by combining risk assessments with societal data like demographics, employment, income, and business activity. Understand how the impacts from climate change on the environment, agriculture, and the economy will affect your communities and businesses. The transparent and scientific approach of GIS helps your organization take necessary, proactive steps.

Revive the planet with intentional changes

Through analysis and visualizations, we see the obvious and subtly dangerous effects of the stress of changing climate and shocks of extreme weather events, such as their effect on food systems. Using Esri's ArcGIS technology, governments and businesses can implement more efficient workflows while simultaneously creating sustainable practices that contribute to a stronger, healthier planet.
