ArcGIS Desktop is the key to realising the advantage of location awareness. Collect and manage data, create professional maps, perform traditional and advanced spatial analysis, and solve real problems. Make a difference and create tangible value for your organisation and community.
Powerful desktop GIS
Let professional-grade software do your heavy lifting. The two primary desktop applications for GIS professionals are ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro, and both are part of ArcGIS Desktop. Each application has unique capabilities to suit your needs. Create everything from simple web maps to complex analytical models.
Create and design maps and 3D scenes
If a picture is worth a thousand words, a relevant map is worth a thousand pictures. Use 2D maps and 3D scenes created on your desktop to visualise data in novel ways, and discover non-obvious relationships, inefficiencies, trends and opportunities.
Advanced analytical tools
The world is filled with unanswered questions. Frame these questions, analyse data, uncover results using an array of analytical tools, and examine your work in 2D and 3D. ArcGIS Desktop includes a rich analytical toolbox and modelling framework that empowers you to perform virtually any type of spatial analysis.
Manage geographic data
Keep everything under control. Build, manage and connect geographic information using feature and tabular data, imagery, online maps, 3D data and much more. Enable enterprise-wide collaboration and manage information collections across your organisation via the ArcGIS platform.
Powerful imagery products
Access ready-to-use imagery from the world’s largest, most comprehensive collection. Leverage an intelligent management system that scales to work with petabytes of data and recognises the sensors you connect to every day.
Extend the reach of your GIS
Get your maps into the hands of others quickly and seamlessly. Turn your professional desktop data, maps and analytics into hosted maps, analysis services, feature layers and imagery services. Provide managed access for your entire organisation using both ArcGIS Enterprise and ArcGIS Online.
3D GIS capabilities
The world is not flat, and you are no longer limited to abstraction. Use 3D to see your data in its true perspective, to make better decisions, and to communicate your ideas more effectively and efficiently. ArcGIS Desktop leads the way in 3D GIS.
