Key to location analysis, Esri's Places Data portfolio provides distinct geographic references, including points of interest (POI), building footprints, boundaries, and parcels. This data can help you understand what attracts people to a location. Add Places Data to your GIS analysis, or confidently build it into your location services applications.
