Curated bundles to support your initiatives
Our software-as-a-service (SaaS) GIS for local government offering provides the flexibility you need with various user types.

What's in a bundle?
The SaaS GIS bundles consist of user types that allow you to deploy and utilize our cloud-based ArcGIS Solutions configurations. User types let you control how your organizations work by matching team members with the capabilities and apps they need to complete their work.
Frequently asked questions
How many solutions can I deploy?
You can deploy as many solutions as you want as long as you have the user types to utilize the related maps and apps. For example, you would need a Field Worker user type to use our solutions for public works. Additional user types can be added to your organization at any time.
What hardware do I need to purchase?
This is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering, so you should not need any new hardware to purchase or deploy these solutions.
What if I've never used GIS before?
SaaS GIS for local government comes with unlimited access to online training with the Learn ArcGIS organization. Our preconfigured solutions do not require familiarity with GIS.
Is there data or mapping information available to help me get started?
ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World, a collection that's included with your purchase, is a great resource for local governments to visualize information about population, weather, streets, imagery, and more. You can add your information as layers to better understand patterns in your community.
What is an example subscription?
A local government has two Creator user types. Administrators with these user types make maps and apps for internal projects such as inspections and community awareness of situations like traffic or weather. With 20 Field Worker user types, workers such as maintenance people use the apps made by the administrators to complete inspections, update road conditions, and access project information. With three Editor user types, users edit and add supplemental data to the field findings. With five Viewer user types, users access dashboards showcasing city information and project statuses.
How do I know what user types to choose?
You should think about who in your organization will be using these tools, then determine what capabilities each of them would need. If you're not sure, you can always start small and add more user types later.
With the Creator user type, users can produce maps and apps, deploy solutions, manage and analyze data, control access, and collaborate with others.
With the Editor user type, users are able to add to and edit your data. For example, users can add new property values within your land records solution.
With the Field Worker user type, users can collect information in the field, typically with the maps and apps on their mobile devices.
With the Viewer user type, users can see your team's private maps and apps.
Can I share solutions with the public?
Yes, and you choose who has access to each solution. We also include ArcGIS Hub with your purchase, so you'll be able to create engaging web destinations that enhance public participation through surveys, interactive maps, performance dashboards, and more.
How often do I need to install updates?
Esri takes care of software updates and maintenance so you are free to focus on your work.
