4 Ways GIS Intelligence is Empowering Communities to Manage their Infrastructure

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 Trimble 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.

Here are four examples of how communities are currently benefiting from the use of ArcGIS and how GIS as a whole is helping to build a more sustainable and data-oriented future.
