Geographic information system (GIS) technology is an amazing tool that allows us to gather, analyze, and visualize geographic data, which in turn creates healthier and more sustainable communities. Without GIS—more specifically Esri’s ArcGIS—the Cityworks platform would not be a possibility. Our goal has always been to empower GIS intelligence to help communities manage their public infrastructure and build a more sustainable and successful future for their residents.
In celebration of GIS day, we have gathered four videos that illustrate how communities are currently benefiting from the use of GIS and how GIS as a whole is helping to build a more sustainable and data-oriented future. GIS day is all about empowering others to learn about geography and the real-world applications of GIS.
