GIS for environmental planning and management
Environmental professionals are spearheading efforts to create a more sustainable and resilient future. Every environmental issue has a geographic component: coastal erosion, contamination, pollution, urbanization, desertification, habitat loss, invasive species, and deforestation. Geographic information system (GIS) technology is a powerful tool to organize, analyze, manage, and visualize geospatial data for due diligence, site assessment and remediation, environmental restoration, and ecological modeling.
Esri’s ArcGIS can help environmental professionals:
- Mitigate impacts and maintain compliance.
- Ensure environmental equity.
- Monitor assets in real-time.
- Foster a healthy green infrastructure.
