Natural resource managers—biologists, botanists, ecologists, environmental regulators, hydrologists, planners, petroleum engineers, foresters, and farmers — rely on the analytical power of GIS for help in making critical decisions to manage the earth's resources.
More than ever in history, we must manage, preserve, and restore our natural resources, and decision makers who must take action need a complete picture of the issues. Esri's ArcGIS platform helps you gain a deeper understanding of the problems we face and lets you bring more accurate information and less guesswork to the table.
There is no simple answer to our environmental and natural resource concerns, but whether its is about restoring habitats, planting crops, drilling for oil, or monitoring endangered species there is increasing optimism that the application of GIS tools will help become a more sustainable planet.
