Welcome to the MAPS Community
Organizations are under great pressure to generate more products and services in less time and with fewer resources. Esri® software helps meet these requirements, no matter the size of the organization, through a database-centric workflow. The database acts as the hub to coordinate activities, from capture through production, data dissemination, and maintenance. Changes can be made at any step in the process. Compared with traditional linear workflows, this unified approach increases return on investment,improves data integrity and decreases risk. Using GIS to collect, manage, produce, and share information makes the ability to create maps, charts, data, and Web services an achievable goal for any organization.
Esri’s ArcGIS® system of software ties workflows with tried-and-true GIS methodologies, ensuring a streamlined production environment. The software’s ability to handle the specific data, products, data models, and symbology of different industries means that aeronautical, nautical, topographic, and other agencies can create their own unique information using the same geographic database.
