Address earth's challenges with GIS


Our planet is facing some of the biggest environmental challenges in modern history. The scientific community is working to combat these natural hazards by utilizing ArcGIS technology. Advanced science-driven understanding of climate change, resources management, and environmental challenges helps decision-makers create sustainable solutions that make positive impacts around the world. Gain quick access to and delivery of analysis-ready data, spend less time on data wrangling, and shift your focus on collaborative scientific innovation. Easily leverage the expertise of cross agencies to fuel science-based decisions and policies.

Cultivate a holistic approach to science and innovation


Innovate with integrated geospatial infrastructure that connects data, processes, and people with GIS technology for an all-inclusive approach to science. Access curated location-based, analysis-ready data in one intelligent system. Deliver real-time data via easy-to-grasp maps, apps, and dashboards. Infuse location intelligence in scientific methods to capitalize on out-of-the-box modeling environments and open-source algorithms, libraries, and coding languages. Facilitate research and decision-making with a collaborative framework to effectively work across boundaries and silos.
