  1. 1. ArcGIS ® Mapping and Spatial Analysis for Understanding Our World
  2. 2. ArcGIS Mapping and Spatial Analysis for Understanding Our World Planning and Analysis • Improve your ability to anticipate and manage change by using spatial analysis. Asset/Data Management • Enable better use of resources by making data available to those who need it. Operational Awareness • Get a comprehensive understanding of the activities affecting your organization. What Is GIS? Geographic information system (GIS) technology gives you a framework for gathering, organizing, sharing, and analyzing spatial information. You can use GIS to see where things are, how they relate, what it all means, and what actions to take. Field Work Force • Experience better and more coordinated decision making as well as faster and more efficient field operations. Constituent Engagement • Share geographic information and achieve transparency with your customers and stakeholders. Geoenable Knowledge Workers • Discover new patterns in your data when you add mapping and location to your existing business systems. ArcGIS® technology helps you with fundamental organizational activities:
  3. 3. Achieve a Commanding, Collaborative View of Your World ArcGIS is a platform for designing and managing solutions through the application of geographic knowledge. It enables you to do deep analysis, gain a greater understanding of your data, and perform high-level decision making. You can use ArcGIS anywhere: Mobile Devices • Field staff can capture, update, analyze, and share geographic information. • The office can get up-to-date information to and from field operations. • Organizations can select from a variety of ArcGIS field mapping applications so that they fit within existing workflows. • The mobile work force can explore and use maps that have been created using ArcGIS. Web • Create maps and apps that make it easy for stakeholders to access authoritative information. • Browse maps and apps published by others using ArcGIS or share your own maps and apps. • Publish map and data services that others can access and include in their projects. Desktop • Use map templates that automate many aspects of cartography. • Build models that help users scientifically analyze data. • Create geodatabases. • Manage and edit geographic data. ArcGIS drive-time analysis helps you reduce costs related to travel times. Collect and edit maps and data using your smartphone online and offline. Work with 2D and 3D views side by side for better understanding and analysis of geographic data.
