ArcGIS is a product suite developed by Environmental Systems Research Institute (Esri), that is comprised of several technologies ranging from the desktop and server, to the hand held device or open source client. These technologies integrate together allowing someone using the software to create data, perform advanced geospatial analysis, and publish it out as a service so that it can be consumed in web applications, mobile devices, or other desktop software.
ArcGIS can be considered an integrated collection of GIS software products that provides a standards-based platform for spatial analysis, data collection and management, imagery analysis, remote sensing, and mapping. ArcGIS is scalable and can be integrated with other enterprise systems such as work order management, business intelligence, and executive dashboards. Some ArcGIS Apps Include:
ArcGIS Dashboards allows you to monitor people, services, assets, and events in real time. Using Dashboards, you can create and share dashboards with your ArcGIS Enterprise portal. Dashboards include charts, gauges, maps, and other visual elements representing the activities and key performance indicators that are most vital to meeting your objectives.
ArcGIS Collector is a mobile data collection app that allows you to accurately capture new data and update existing features in the field, even when working offline, and integrate seamlessly into ArcGIS. Using Collector, you can collect and update data using the GPS or by tapping on the map, fill out map-driven forms, and optionally use professional-grade GPS receivers.
ArcGIS Field Maps
ArcGIS Field Maps is a new app that allows you to streamline field workflows and take maps anywhere. Mobile workers can use Field Maps to explore the maps you make in ArcGIS, collect and update data, and track their location-all from one app. Field Maps empowers mobile workers to take their maps anywhere, including offline and indoors-and it allows you to deploy maps and content to a single location.
ArcGIS Drone2Map allows you to visualize and analyze geolocated images you collect with a drone to help you inspect areas from the air and monitor changes. 2D and 3D maps you create with Drone2Map can be shared to ArcGIS Enterprise.
ArcGIS Explorer is a mobile app that allows everyone in your organization to access their maps everywhere they go, anytime they need them, even when working offline. You can visualize data, search for places and features in your maps, view information about your assets, mark up the maps to highlight important features, and get directed to hard-to-see assets with the compass.
ArcGIS QuickCapture is a field data capture app that allows you to capture data fast. You can capture the location and attributes of assets or incidents as you travel. A project author determines the arrangement of buttons, how they appear, and the information they collect. The app allows you to capture photos and sensor information from the device.
ArcGIS Survey123 facilitates form-centric data collection workflows in ArcGIS. For a good portion of data collection efforts, geography is critical but not central to the workflow. ArcGIS Survey123 recognizes this fact and brings the sophistication of forms expected in the industry into ArcGIS.
ArcGIS Tracker uses the location tracking service in two apps: the Track Viewer web app and the ArcGIS Tracker mobile app. The Track Viewer web app allows administrators to create track views, defining who is tracked and who can view those tracks. The Tracker mobile app is optimized for tracking locations in the background, minimizing the impact on device battery. The mobile app records tracks independently of whether there is a data connection and gives mobile users control of when they are and aren’t tracked.
ArcGIS Workforce uses the power of location to achieve better coordination and teamwork in your field workforce. Get the right worker to the right place with the right tools to do the right job. Dispatchers use the Workforce web app to create and assign work, monitor progress, and see where workers are in real time. Mobile workers use the Workforce mobile app to work through their personal To Do list and communicate status.
ArcGIS Pro allows you to create and work with spatial data on your desktop. It provides tools to visualize, analyze, compile, and share your data in both 2D and 3D environments. You can connect from ArcGIS Pro to your ArcGIS Enterprise portal, and use the maps and layers in the portal. You can also publish hosted feature and tile layers to your portal.
ArcGIS Desktop is a group of desktop applications, centered on ArcMap, that provide advanced capabilities to author, edit, and analyze spatial data. GIS services such as map, geoprocessing, locator, and imagery—provide the foundation for much of the work performed in ArcGIS Enterprise.
ArcGIS Business Analyst Enterprise
ArcGIS Business Analyst Enterprise allows you to share demographic analysis and spatial analytics across an organization. Included in this solution are an out-of-the-box web app and the ArcGIS GeoEnrichment Service. ArcGIS Business Analyst Enterprise helps commercial Realtors, retailers, economic development agencies, and others to evaluate markets for expansion, consolidation, or investment.
ArcGIS Business Analyst web app
The ArcGIS Business Analyst web app allows commercial Realtors, retailers, economic development agencies, and others to evaluate markets for expansion, consolidation, or investment.
ArcGIS Earth is a lightweight desktop app that allows members of your organization to explore 2D and 3D data, including KML and ArcGIS services. ArcGIS Earth uses the basemap, elevation service, and geocoding settings configured for your portal.
ArcGIS Excalibur is a web app that modernizes and enhances image-based workflows through intuitive experiences. These experiences allow you to search, discover, and work with imagery in fully integrated workflows for image analytics and exploitation.
ArcGIS for Office
ArcGIS for Office provides mapping capabilities in Microsoft Office through a Microsoft add-in. You can use this add-in with Microsoft Excel to create maps in your portal that show data from your spreadsheets. Additionally, an add-in for PowerPoint allows you to embed these maps into your presentations.
ArcGIS Insights is an app you access through your portal that allows you to perform iterative and exploratory data analysis on ArcGIS web services, Excel spreadsheets, and data stored in databases.
ArcGIS Maps for Adobe Creative Cloud
ArcGIS Maps for Adobe Creative Cloud is an extension for Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop that allows cartographers and graphic designers to design compelling visuals using data-driven maps and layers from ArcGIS. You can find, import, and create geographic content to add to your artwork as editable vector layers and high resolution images.
ArcGIS StoryMaps is a story authoring web-based application that allows you to share your maps in the context of narrative text and other multimedia content. You can use StoryMaps to author stories with the story builder, and publish, share, and manage your stories.
ArcGIS Workflow Manager
ArcGIS Workflow Manager Server is a scalable enterprise workflow management system that automates and simplifies many aspects of performing and managing GIS and non-GIS work in an organization. It provides real-time tools to manage people, processes, and products required to complete work.
