Collaborate to build comfort and convenience

Livability is about more than the way a community looks. At their core, livable communities have to juggle multiple priorities to reduce congestion, safely manage water and waste, and create the infrastructure for sustained success. When GIS connects the community to government programs, crowdsourced information can combine with enterprise data and IOT feeds to proactively assess where necessary infrastructure repairs and other opportunities to improve livability exist.

Forward-thinking communities use the ArcGIS platform to become more livable every day


The location-based approach is a way of problem solving that integrates geographic information into how you understand and manage your infrastructure. It opens information to more people and helps reveal critical issues that promote livability.

Are you able to map critical infrastructure?


ArcGIS simplifies monitoring road conditions and managing rights-of-way assets by helping to coordinate road maintenance, oversee critical assets, schedule crews, and run traffic scenarios more precisely than you ever thought possible—all within an intuitive mapping system.

Can you prevent a mosquito invasion?


ArcGIS gives public works professionals and mosquito abatement districts the ability to prevent or mitigate the spread of mosquitos through proactive planning and spraying. ArcGIS enables you to monitor insect problems in real-time, as well as precisely map high mosquito populations.

Are you prepared for winter storm impacts?


ArcGIS gives you the ability to plan for and efficiently manage the impact of heavy snow and ice on your streets when winter hits. Departments empowered with authoritative data track and measure the progress of snow plows, dump trucks, and people working in the field in real-time.

Can you use data to take out the trash?


ArcGIS aids solid waste management by merging maps with community data, such as service payee and telematics information. Build geographic awareness with real-time inventories and reports that help departments keep operations for trash, green waste, and recycling collection on time and on target.

Is park maintenance destroying everyone's weekend?


ArcGIS helps to efficiently prioritize and schedule work in recreational areas. Mapping vegetation data gives communities a deeper understanding of their parks, helping optimize maintenance and conserve resources. Mobile devices allow department staff to bring data directly to the field.

Are you too often knee-deep in dirty water?


ArcGIS enables you to integrate information from sensors, meters, crews, and pipes, and insights are shared through easy-to-use, interactive maps. Reduce regulation compliance cleaning and assessment costs, save significant travel time for staff, and complete more assessments per day.
