Now more than ever, a heightened geospatial awareness of our place in the world is driving us to rebuild and strengthen our relationship with our planet and each other. Esri's vision that humanity and nature can not only coexist but thrive is rooted in knowing that a mutually beneficial relationship starts with respect and deep understanding. Leaders, answering an urgent call to better understand and respect all stakeholders, are using geographic technology and artificial intelligence (AI) to rethink where and how to solve important problems, grasp the broader context of our actions, and create a more resilient and promising future.

Moving beyond inspiration to action


Around the world, business and government leaders create meaningful change for a sustainable and prosperous future, powered by location intelligence.

Nurturing our oceans

Advances in mapping and analysis are providing the knowledge we need to sustain life both on land and in the sea—helping us move beyond simply extracting resources to intentionally nurturing and sustaining the world's oceans.

Designing smarter cities

From a single street to towns and megacities, we can reinvent urban systems for a smarter, fairer, and more sustainable relationship with our planet and one another.

Preparing for emergencies

Location intelligence is fueling a profound change—instead of reacting, we use location technology to intervene early, reducing cascading challenges and proactively mapping where to mobilize people when action is critical.

Modernizing infrastructure

In a global economy, infrastructure runs on dynamic, location-aware platforms. We can manage these organic systems to increase productivity and scalability while gleaning insight and business intelligence.

Rethinking public health

With growing awareness of the interconnectedness of the health of people, animals, and the environment, location intelligence shows us where and how to intervene to foster a holistic view of health and public care.

Accelerating renewable agriculture

Using datacentric precision agriculture to improve productivity, safety, nutrition, and sustainability can protect land and ensure sustenance for future generations.

Upgrading transportation

To develop transport systems that align with both human need and the earth's systems, we take a sustainable approach, considering how each place and movement is connected to everything else.

Boosting commerce, innovation, and GDP

Businesses use location intelligence to get closer to customers and supply chains; manage assets and facilities (both physical and virtual); operate sustainably; and compete for talent, innovation, and intellectual property.
