Scholars in dozens of fields use data visualization and analysis tools. Maximize the return on your technology investments with an integrated product suite that supports teaching and research in a wide range of disciplines including the geosciences, social sciences, natural resource management, urban planning, business, and the humanities. From simple web maps to sophisticated analyses, ArcGIS provides a common toolset throughout your institution. This reduces the learning curve for students and faculty, simplifies help desk inquiries, and encourages collaboration.
