Science helps us understand not only how the earth works but also how it looks (geodesign) and how we look at it (Earth observation). We support the science community and seek to do good science at Esri, as it underpins much of what we do as an organization. This also helps us evolve ArcGIS into a comprehensive geospatial platform for science.

Underpinning all our science initiatives is the Living Atlas, one of the world's best compilations of government and commercial geographic information, with a growing academic catalog. This resource enables great mapping and analytics, secure sharing and collaboration, compelling science communication via storytelling, and an ecosystem where models and maps can be shared to further understanding.
