Desktop GIS

Perform advanced spatial analysis, model operational processes and visualize results on professional quality maps.



ArcInfo is the most complete desktop GIS. It includes all the functionality of ArcEditor and ArcView and adds advanced spatial analysis, extensive data manipulation, and high-end cartography tools. Organizations use the power of ArcInfo every day to create, edit, and analyze their data in order to make better decisions, faster. ArcInfo is the de facto standard for GIS.

With ArcInfo, you can

Perform advanced GIS data analysis and modeling
Take advantage of tools designed for overlay analysis, proximity analysis, surface analysis, and raster processing and conversion
Publish and convert data in many formats
Create and manage personal geodatabases, multiuser geodatabases, and feature datasets
Use high-end cartography tools to generate professional-quality, publication-ready maps
Design customized symbols and place sophisticated annotation and labels on your maps.



ArcEditor is a powerful GIS desktop system for editing and managing geographic data. It includes all the functionality of ArcView along with additional advanced editing tools to ensure the quality of your data. ArcEditor supports single-user and multiuser editing, allowing you to disconnect from the database and edit in the field.

With ArcEditor, you can

Allow multiple users to simultaneously modify and edit data
Build and maintain spatial relationships between features using topology rules and a process called validation
Support multiple workflows, manage work order processing, and implement QA procedures for validating edits
Monitor the database over time and evaluate what-if scenarios
Perform raster-to-vector conversion and create data from scanned maps.



ArcView is geographic information system (GIS) software for visualizing, managing, creating, and analyzing geographic data. Using ArcView, you can understand the geographic context of your data, allowing you to see relationships and identify patterns in new ways.

With ArcView, you can

Author maps and interact with your data by generating reports and charts and printing and embedding your maps in other documents and applications
Save time using map templates to create consistent style in your maps
Build process models, scripts, and workflows to visualize and analyze your data
Read, import, and manage more than 70 different data types and formats including demographics, facilities, CAD drawings, imagery, Web services, multimedia, and metadata
Communicate more efficiently by printing, publishing, and sharing your GIS data and dynamic content with others
Use tools such as Find, Identify, Measure, and Hyperlink to discover information not available when working with static paper maps
Make better decisions and solve problems faster.
