Jack Dangermond is an American businessman and environmental scientist. In 1969, he co-founded with his wife Laura the Environmental Systems Research Institute (esri), a privately held Geographic Information Systems software company.
Esri was founded with a vision that computer-based mapping and analysis could make significant contributions in the areas of geographic planning and environmental science.
He is a recipient of 10 honorary doctorate degrees and has served on advisory committees for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Academy of Sciences, and the National Science Foundation.
Esri focuses on GIS because of the belief that “geography matters”. Geography connects our many cultures and societies. GIS provides additional ways to understand cultures and societies which increases communication and collaboration opportunities.
Esri business develops technologies that enables organizations to create responsible and sustainable solutions to problems at local and global scales. The company believes that geography is at the heart of a more resilient and sustainable future, thus they have developed softwares that governments, industry leaders, academics, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) can trust to connect them with the analytic knowledge they need to make critical decisions.
ArcGIS provides a common location platform to support geocentric, geoenabled, and geoembedded workflows. It is open, configurable, fast, and efficient. It helps organizations integrate, display, analyze, and enrich information from many sources; see important changes that impact business; and bring new insights for better decision making. A key component of the ArcGIS platform is web GIS, which combines GIS servers, portals, and apps to enable everyone in an organization to discover, use, make, and share maps from any device, anywhere, anytime. Web GIS can be implemented as SaaS, as software on-premises, or as a hybrid of these. Finally, ArcGIS is a platform for developers. Developers can use ArcGIS APIs and SDKs to create a variety of apps for organizations, businesses, and consumers.
What is ArcGIS
Esri’s ArcGIS is a geographic information system (GIS) for working with maps and geographic information. It is used for: creating and using maps; compiling geographic data; analyzing mapped information; sharing and discovering geographic information; using maps and geographic information in a range of applications; and managing geographic information in a database.
”Simply put, ArcGIS helps you use spatial information to perform deep analysis, gain a greater understanding of your data, and make more informed decisions”.
