Esri’s geographic information system (GIS) software gives you the power to think and plan geographically. GIS is used in more than 350,000 organizations worldwide. It helps cities, governments, universities, and Fortune 500 companies save money, lives, and our environment. Whether transporting ethanol or studying landslides, these organizations use GIS to collect, manage, and analyze geographic information, which helps them see relationships, patterns, and trends. They can then solve problems and make better decisions because they are looking at their data in a way that is quickly understood and easily shared.
