ArcGIS enables interoperability of all GIS data types, formats, and specifications of data. Users can bring vector and raster data into and out of the system in their format of choice. Many organisations also use ArcGIS to share and work with open data so they can communicate effectively, meet mandated transparency requirements, and enable greater insights. Esri includes open data capabilities at no cost in ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Hub.
Supporting your data formats
Data interoperability ensures that you can access and store GIS data types in the formats you already use. ArcGIS works directly with the most common data sources, widely implements open standard formats, and provides the ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension for unique transformation needs.
Data Interoperability extension
For all other data or storage types, the ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension connects hundreds of different files, databases, cloud and web services, feeds, and more to ArcGIS without any coding. Freely leverage vector, raster, text, tabular, markup, notation, binary data, and more.
Share open data
Esri provides government customers and data owners several easy ways to share and edit authoritative public data.
Share and discover authoritative data with ArcGIS Hub. Publish your public data once with an open licence to maximise discovery and reuse data.
Leverage public and open data
ArcGIS provides easy access to authoritative public data provided by customers, partners, and the OpenStreetMap community.
Leverage the open data provided through ArcGIS Hub to improve understanding, drive new efficiencies, and transform community engagement.
ArcGIS makes it easy to integrate OpenStreetMap (OSM) data into maps and apps.
