ArcGIS

Mapping & analytics system for visualizing data by location

About ArcGIS

ArcGIS from Esri is an integrated collection of geographic information system (GIS) software products for multiple platforms and promising standards-compliant handling of spatial analysis, data management, and location-based 3D data mapping. Providing the contextual tools for mapping and spatial reasoning, ArcGIS enables users to visualize and analyze organizational business practice data in terms of its environmental location, while collaborating with others by sharing insights via not only maps, but apps and reports also. ArcGIS Online is specifically the hosted, online SaaS version of the product, offering a complete, cloud-based mapping solution.

ArcGIS Online promises a scalable, secure and compliant GIS that allows users to collaboratively use, create and share maps, while working with scenes, layers, analytics, data and also apps. In addition, access is granted to content within ArcGIS' Living Atlas of the World and its collection of geographic information sourced from around the globe including maps, apps and data layers relevant to a variety of working applications. Aside from the product's cloud infrastructure, ArcGIS is then supported by a suite of extra apps and a number compatible with iOS and Android devices. This includes the ArcGIS Companion app for field-based access to the viewing of organizational content, plus additional tools and features for data collection.

    ArcGIS is the GIS

    Reviewed on 10/05/2022

    Pros

    ESRI is THE GIS company. For handling everything geospatial, they are the go to company

    Cons

    There are fun errors that are legendarily frustrating. Reading documentation is a language of it's own. But nothing classes can't overcome

    ArcGIS Suite - Extremely Powerful

    Our field crews and engineering staff couldn't function without it. Out utilities assets with all of their attributes are on our digital maps. On it we document structures attributes, condition over time, maintenance schedules, and even hyperlink photo and video inspections to each asset. Invaluable information no further away than a click of a button, no matter where in our world that you are!

    Pros

    Extremely powerful software with a tool for just about anything you could think of to do with geographic data. "Smart Maps". Objects given geographic location and attributes of any kind that you want running in the background.

    Cons

    ELA agreement is extremely reasonable but for a private individual it could be cost prohibitive. I believe they are working on a different license model for home users but would have to check on it.

    The industry standard

    Reviewed on 27/04/2022

    Pros

    ArcGIS has an application anywhere within the GIS space. Thus knowledge of this software is transferable to any position so long as it requires GIS data to be handled. There are lots of forums, posts, and additional resources to help you along the way so you will not get lost.

    Cons

    When exporting or handling data ESRI prefers to keep things proprietary. This means being forced to use their organizational systems if you want to share and examine data in an efficient manner. This also means you are at the mercy of ESRI capabilities and trust in their ability to roll out feature updates in a timely matter.

    ArcGIS is the go to for everything geospatial. If you have access to a licence. It can interact with a wide range of workflows, and rarely is there a geographic analysis that ArcGIS cannot solve.

    Pros

    ArcGIS offers a full suite of various programs for working with geographical data, ArcScene, ArcView, ArcMap, ArcGIS Pro.
    If you have a need, ArcGIS can solve it.

    Cons

    The annual licence for ArcGIS is extremely expensive. If you are willing to put in the extra time, you can find free alternatives that fit within your workflow. For example, QGIS, if you need a GUI, or Python if you or a team member are comfortable coding.
