Environmental Management

Turn science into action.

Understanding the interdependency of the earth’s ecosystems and human impact on the environment requires a great deal of information and analytical capacity. Doing something about it requires insight and collaboration. Esri ArcGIS technology allows you to do both. Esri supports all industries whose work touches environmental management. Government agencies, private businesses, and environmental organizations use Esri ArcGIS to turn science into action that meets the Earth’s major challenges.

Protect people from pollution.

Create policy, implement regulations, manage enforcement, and repeat. You can effectively manage a broad scope of regulatory activities with Esri. Give staff better access to vital information and empower them to see areas of concern with geospatial intelligence. Staff have better access to vital information and clearly see areas of concern using geospatial intelligence. Whether measuring air quality in real time or regulating the movement of controlled waste, Esri helps you understand the problem and respond faster.

Benefits

Plan

Access data and use place-based decision-making tools to formulate effective plans.

Regulate

Before issuing or applying for a permit, analyze all the ways the site might be impacted by the project.

Enforce

Locate compromised sites and find the source of regulatory violation. Record evidence, build a case, and present it in court.

Solutions

ArcGIS Pro

Use ArcGIS Pro to manage the robust analyses required for regulatory projects. The brawn of the Esri suite, ArcGIS Pro does the heavy lifting for geospatial analysis. It builds 3D images, handles big data, and drives powerful models.

ArcGIS Enterprise

The reach of an environmental agency is broad. ArcGIS Enterprise extends that reach by putting GIS into the hands of everyone in the agency. Staff can monitor real-time data, work in dynamic environments, and communicate with the public using online services.

Keep a watchful eye on Earth.

Twenty-first century technology captures massive amounts of data about your planet. Yet, finding that data and making sense of it can be overwhelming. Esri works with many organizations to standardize data and make it open for environmental analysis. You can monitor the community impact of pollution, weather, and hazards. You can also build online gateways with Esri technology that provide easy access to sensor and imagery data.

Benefits

Measure

Assess environmental impact and bring together earth-bound sensor data and satellite imagery. See a comprehensive picture of events.

Model

Explore how the environment has changed. Scenarios show you how trends might extend into the future.

Assess

Use environmental modeling tools to study how areas in proximity to pollution sources are affected.

Solutions

ArcGIS Enterprise

Using ArcGIS Enterprise makes everyone across the agency more capable and efficient. It gives analysts the ability to discover, use, and share maps anywhere and from any device. Create web apps and give staff tools and apps that help them do specific tasks.

ArcGIS Online

Basemaps in ArcGIS Online provide the foundation for understanding environmental relationships. For example, you can add an urban forest data layer to an analysis about the city’s changing temperatures. Collaborate with others. Share your maps and data on your environmental web pages, blogs, and social media.

Weigh your options.

People who plan and manage ecosystem restoration projects need tools to analyze data and carefully weigh their decisions. They must clearly understand all the ramifications of their projects. Esri technology brings authoritative data together and reveals problem areas. With intelligent maps, solutions become obvious. Analyze massive amounts of data to study trends. See how human modifications may affect the environment in the long run.

Benefits

Prioritize

Visualize different scenarios. Prioritize restoration projects using weighted environmental indicators, cultural values, and available resources.

Restore

Promote projects that support ecosystem integrity and sustainability. Monitor and evaluate key factors that impact restoration activities.

Identify

Establish baselines and measure habitat and land-use change. Incorporate variables, such as population growth, to foresee the future.

Solutions

ArcGIS Pro

Robust geospatial technology helps environmental agencies and consultants locate stressed areas and design remediation. ArcGIS Pro performs many types of complex geospatial analyses. You can assess ecological design scenarios to evaluate alternative restoration approaches. Monitor project status.

Collector for ArcGIS

Use our Collector for ArcGIS web app to complete environmental inventory surveys. Set up a data collection form and make it available to your workers, along with a map. Take a snapshot of a corroded pipe, send it to the geodatabase, and add it to a map.

ArcGIS Spatial Analyst

An extension to ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS for Spatial Analyst gives you a rich toolset to perform advanced analysis and visualize data. You can track groundwater contaminants, understand watershed flow characteristics, and categorize findings based on threat types.
