Transform how you engage and collaborate with your community

ArcGIS Hub provides a two-way engagement platform to connect government and communities.

Communities need information. Leaders need platforms of engagement.


ArcGIS Hub can make a smart community even smarter, giving context and purpose to data. It organises people, processes, and technology to meet the needs of citizens and governments.


Translate aspirations into initiatives


ArcGIS Hub engages governments and communities around policy initiatives, by providing data-driven insights to tackle pressing issues. This helps bring top priorities into focus.


Give your community a goal to rally around

ArcGIS Hub extends your enterprise GIS and brings data-driven policy to life. The framework combines data, visualisation, analytics, and collaboration technology. With ArcGIS Hub, you can:

Create and
launch initiatives
Put your open
data to work
Get your citizens
to participate
Find better ways
to tell stories
Construct, repeat
and scale

Create and launch initiatives

Spend less time creating web pages and more time solving problems. Access ready-to-use templates to make websites for your initiatives. Create content and apps to show progress, plus tools to align your data to the apps. Or, use ArcGIS Hub's initiative builder experience to create custom initiatives.

Put your open data to work

Open data is a key component of ArcGIS Hub. Use Esri demographics and data from the Living Atlas of the World. Combine it with your open data to fuel the apps included in your initiative plans. Add your data to ArcGIS Hub apps to help citizens locate services or follow the flow of funding dollars.

Get your citizens to participate

People in your community can easily create accounts in your Hub using social media logins. Then, they can start collecting data or responding to your surveys and polls. Engagement dashboards measure community reach, show which tools are effective, and help refine your approach.

Find better ways to tell stories

Use story maps, dashboards, and infographic reports to present data in intuitive ways, share information, measure progress, and show accountability. ArcGIS Hub is the engagement focal point for your community’s top issues and a place to publish the work your community creates together.

Construct, repeat, and scale

Once ArcGIS Hub is setup for your community, you can form initiative teams. Plan or attend initiative focused meetups and events. Keep building on the work you have already done. Then, start scaling to tackle your community’s biggest problems together.
