Esri Canada - Profile of the Month: February 2018
Esri Canada provides enterprise geographic information system (GIS) solutions that empower organizations to make timely, informed decisions by leveraging the power of geography, The Science of Where. Governments worldwide leverage ArcGIS, Esri’s mapping and spatial analytics platform, to improve service delivery, accountability and fiscal management.
One of the many ways you can use ArcGIS is to provide online community access to information. With ArcGIS Open Data, your organization can release data and promote transparency, innovation and economic development. It enables you to create interactive open data catalogues or portals within minutes, providing an efficient and effective system for sharing data with the public. More importantly, the application allows you to go beyond open data—getting from download to impact–which is open data’s true goal.
Many organizations in Ontario, including Durham Region, City of Brampton, City of Kitchener, City of Mississauga and Toronto Police Service, to name a few, open their data using Esri technology. Learn more at esri.ca.
Esri is a 30+ years, Platinum Sustaining member of URISA Ontario, a BeSpatial exhibitor and presenter at numerous events. Thank you for your ongoing support!
