Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC)

Location intelligence for AEC

Architecture, Engineering, and Construction

One platform for AEC

Architects, engineers, builders, and owners use Esri GIS solutions to improve workflows, bring context to projects, and increase collaboration throughout project life cycles. GIS is helping architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) firms build smart communities and assets for the future. Discover efficiencies, gain insights, and strengthen engagement with mapping applications across project teams. Add location to design to understand projects in context and deliver repeatable solutions. Location intelligence transforms the way we plan, design, build, and operate in the built and natural environment.

Case Study

Revolutionizing Irrigation Pipeline Design using ArcGIS

In recent times, lift irrigation projects have emerged as a popular solution for supplying water to agricultural lands at elevations higher than the source of water.

Innovation in the built environment

Planning for Sustainability

Communities are complex and continually evolving. City planners face pressures such as population growth, climate change, migratory and age-based demographic change, and the push to be competitive in a global environment. As they work to better understand projects in terms of the impact on places and people, planners can use smart maps and spatial analysis. This approach empowers proactive, informed decisions that support resilient and sustainable communities, cities and towns - and their people.

Digital Twin

Digital Twins are virtual representations of the real world that incorporate physical objects, processes, relationships and behaviours,. The convergence of geospatial technology, building information modelling (BIM) and interactive 3D can be used to simulate single facilities, entire cities, and even large natural systems. Digital Twins are used to represent accurate historical state, to observe and monitor performance and explore or predict future state.

Digital transformation in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry requires professionals to use geospatial and design data together. Esri pioneered problem-solving through GIS and is integrating building information modelling (BIM) and location intelligence to drive improvements in the industry. Esri has partnered with Autodesk to put GIS and BIM integration at the centre of construction projects for a more sustainable, resilient future. We're bridging the gap between GIS and BIM, delivering real business value to architects, engineers, contractors, and owners. Combining 3D models from Revit and other applications with location intelligence from ArcGIS increases efficiencies and maximises investments.

Environmental Management

Environmental science is a multidisciplinary field that integrates the biological, social, and physical sciences. Every environmental issue has a geographic component: coastal erosion, contamination, pollution, urbanisation, desertification, habitat loss, invasive species, and deforestation, just to name a few. GIS is a powerful technology to organise, analyse, manage, and visualise geospatial data for due diligence, site assessment and remediation, environmental restoration, and ecological modelling.

Mobile Working

Simplified collection and analysis of data on conditions throughout the project inform the engineers making critical decisions, which will have an impact for years.
