"Best tool for Mapping Users "

What do you like best?

This Esri tool can help you to see a place or location with a great detail and as a professional in geography study area is an advantage for the time to create or edit a map using layers to explain the process, you can check all the Esri information just like using the variety of historic maps they have in their base service.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the programm is slower when you need to use much data or layers and that can be stressfull if you have a timetable for your projects. If someone who doesn´t know about all the Esri enviroments should just use othe programms to work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Is a great option if you have work with others Esri products and if the company works for in minimize the problems increasing the capacity to handle big data when you work in some projects.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have a great experience using this programm in collegue and right now in my job for mapping the streets and households, mapping out the land parcels locations in rural towns, adjust overlap zones and have a basemap and I can save this database with the Esri online service.

"Great tool for maps"

What do you like best?

I really like how you can use the gps to get detailed information. I am able to zoom into a map and measure area or distance. I am also able to get a variety of maps like topo maps or even maps showing specific areas for specific reasons.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the gps function is not always accurate. Sometimes, I have asked it to find me and it will be hundreds of meters off. Also, it doesn't always stay loaded to the map that I want. Sometimes I will open it backup and it will have all reloaded and I need to find the map again that I was using.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would spend some time getting to know the program. There are some features that take a little work to be comfortable using.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I like to use the app for finding land that I can access. There are some great maps that show where I can find the stuff I am looking for. When I take people out for networking, I am able to bring them to those places as well. It can really make my job easier.

"Software is very good for usage, comfortable to opertae and easy to understand"

What do you like best?

Visual capacity for maps is amazing and fascinating. We can create maps easily and easy to learn as well.

Firstly, the support. No GIS software comes with as much support online, from other users, through esri directly, or in school. This is the software taught in schools, and is what every industry uses. Also, once you have an active account, you have access to the most robust web mapping API on the market. This claim could probably be challenged, but I haven't seen anything that provides such a low barrier to entry that also allows for deep customization through the Java API.

What do you dislike?

Cant handle big data, gets too slow with that data. You have to work with python to diminish that downside. Also it s having problems competing with other data based startups in terms of mapping tools.

The price. This software is not cheap, especially for a small business. Additionally, the newest version, ArcGIS Pro, is still a bit buggy and can lag, but it's getting better. The software isn't necessarily intuitive. I spent several years learning and using it in the university. That being said, ArcGIS Pro is trying to make it more intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The problem is somehow product needs to increase its capacity to handle big data in different ways, some startups are moving forward while ESRI is struggling with that. If you re dealing with huge chucks of data, i suggest you look other options.

This is the standard. I would only recommend something else if you have no money and must have a free GIS software suite. Otherwise, there shouldn't be any question. If you are going to learn GIS, learn the one that every employer is looking for in a GIS analyst.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use ArcGIS to locate and map client assets that they themselves may not know where it is We also use ArcGIS for content creation for use in a Google Maps environment.

ArcGIS a contribuido a mejorar los niveles de atención de nuestra empresa, dado que conocemos la procedencia de la personas ello nos ha permitido ampliar nuestro mercado hacia lugares donde proviene la mayor cantidad de compradores y hacer más placentera y cercana la oportunidad de conseguir el libro de su preferencia. Todo esto se ha realizado cruzando datos espaciales con registros administrativos que en conjunto contribuyen a entender mejor la relación entre empresa y consumidor.

"A good application to see ESRI data"

What do you like best?

I like the finding data is more practical because it offers direct access to services, not only IMS but also WMS data and ESRI Arcweb services ... in Google Earth is not so simple and we must wait for Mr. Google to fancy integrating layers. Historical maps are very practical and educational although they would do well to show shortcuts to other web services.

What do you dislike?

An excessive consumption of resources. This may be improved later, ArcGIS Explorer consumes a lot, a machine with little memory or a very loaded system can hang up in a few minutes. I also think that it has little coverage of high resolution images.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can run more GIS routines, such as thematic maps, 3D, printing and those metrics that ArcGIS Explorer 3x was already doing, routines for which GoogleEarth is not yet ready, and which is not its emphasis when considering a cartographic web while ArcGIS Explorer It is a spatial data viewer

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to create our own base maps and services with Arcgis and other Esri client applications and visualize everything within our organization very easily and quickly

What do you like best?

Mapping out land parcel locations. This is very effective since sometimes other softwares have incorrect coordinates
