Esri delivers a platform that encompasses and addresses all of the components of geospatial infrastructure—the people, data, technology, and science that allows organizations to visualize, analyze, plan, and act. The ArcGIS platform is engineered to tackle workflows and create solutions that integrate geographic knowledge for a greater understanding that underpins evidence-based decision making.

In the areas of geospatial infrastructure that Esri doesn’t own—such as constellations of earth observing satellites or data collection devices—we work directly with partners to ensure that our platform can ingest and manage data and work well on any device.
Esri’s geospatial infrastructure supports organizations and industries at many scales, uniting distributed information and making GIS accessible to everyone.
Many frameworks have been used to describe the combination of geospatial data, science, hardware, and software that all contribute to this industry.

It has emerged as a contemporary vision to frame the increasingly integrated components of the geospatial industry.
