Location intelligence connects field operations and the office to improve operational efficiency for environment and natural resources agencies. Perform your work—whether it's asset inventory, inspections, field notes, or work orders—from any location and on any device. Use GIS to:

  • Enable access to the same authoritative data from any location to improve coordination and operational efficiency.
  • Eliminate manual workflows to improve response rate in critical situations.
  • Get instant updates that allow for real-time course correction so that you and your team can quickly respond to changing needs.

Gain operational efficiency


Connect the field and office

With current GIS innovations, you can now integrate and automate field and back-office workflows, leaving behind the tedious, error-ridden manual methods of clipboard and pen. Crews can automatically capture information from the field and feed it directly into your office systems, ensuring that your entire organization is working with the same authoritative information, leaving less room for error.

Improve response rate

When you are working to protect the earth's resources, you don't have time to wait. You need to be able to access data and analysis whenever and wherever you go. Whether monitoring air quality, invasive pests, water levels, or other critical issues, environmental professionals rely on GIS to quickly and easily access the information they need to respond effectively.


Easily adapt to changing needs

Natural resources professionals need technology that is as dynamic as their surroundings. The environment is constantly changing and GIS enables you to keep your finger on the pulse. With real-time updates based on authoritative information, GIS empowers environmental professionals to effectively assess critical situations and course correct as needed.
