Strengthen security operations

Protecting critical infrastructure and managing large-scale events are of paramount importance to the security and stability of communities around the world. GIS supports security mapping for critical events, analytics to support operations planning, real-time monitoring, and risk management for any event—planned or unplanned.

Capabilities for infrastructure and critical event management

Understand your area of operation

Understanding your area of operation (AO) means being able to define and protect a specific geography such as a facility, a campus, or even a large city. Use ArcGIS to collect, integrate, map, and visualize foundational or sensor data, imagery, and demographics for complete situational awareness of your AO.
