ArcGIS - Esri Mapping

What exactly is ArcGIS? A geographic information system (GIS) is a tool for creating, managing, analyzing, and visualizing geospatial data. ArcGIS can be used as a standalone application or integrated with other applications. Users can analyze their data based on geography. ArcGIS mapping technology is both enterprise and community GIS software that ESRI develops for government agencies and commercial enterprises worldwide. It is widely used in the public sector due to its cost-effective design for organizations at all levels, from local municipalities to federal governments, militaries, and even corporations with geographically driven business needs. The types of analyses ArcGIS can do include the following: ArcGIS combines different data types into a single location; users do not have to assemble scattered or disparate datasets. Users can also see the spatial relationships between data sets using ArcGIS, allowing them to compare data across multiple themes and scales by combining all their data into a single map. By using ArcGIS, you can create time-series maps that show how a variable changes over time. For example, the ArcGIS software can provide a map showing the increase in crime over the last five years. Monitoring deforestation in a geographic region over a long period is another good use of ArcGIS's time series mapping capability. Businesses can use ArcGIS to correlate environmental factors with sales. ArcGIS time series maps are excellent for showing how environmental variables change over time, which can help enterprises to make plans for future business decisions based on how the environment affects these variables. ArcGIS can be used, for example, to monitor rainfall trends over time in a geographical area and then to plan an agricultural company's supply chain accordingly. Additionally, ArcGIS can provide insight into consumer behavior by mapping demographic data alongside retail sales data to track shopping patterns across different areas of interest. In ArcGIS, you can create thematic maps that show how phenomena relate based on common characteristics. A good application of the thematic map capability in analyzing education data at multiple scales shows how different educational initiatives and programs relate to one another. Using ArcGIS, you can make thematic maps that illustrate the connections between demographic data and outcomes such as graduation rates and literacy levels. It is possible to create distribution maps that illustrate where a particular phenomenon gets geographically located using ArcGIS.
