ESRI GIS Products
ESRI ArcGIS is an integrated collection of GIS software products for building and deploying a complete GIS wherever it is needed — on desktops, servers, or custom applications; over the Web; or in the field. ArcGIS allows you to use one common platform to meet all your GIS needs such as performing spatial analysis, managing large amounts of spatial data, or producing cartographically appealing maps to aid in decision making.
ArcGIS is built using technology standards that integrate well with your existing systems. ArcGIS is a complete system for authoring, serving, and using geographic information.
ArcGIS for Desktop
ArcGIS for Desktop is software that allows you to discover patterns, relationships, and trends in your data that are not readily apparent in databases, spreadsheets, or statistical packages. The products includes: ArcGIS Basic for Desktop (ArcView), ArcGIS Standard for Desktop (ArcEditor), and ArcGIS Advance for Desktop (ArcInfo).
ArcGIS For Server
ArcGIS Server allows you to share your GIS resources across an enterprise and across the web. GIS resources are the maps, globes, address locators, geodatabases, and tools that you want to share with others.
ArcGIS® Server enables you to distribute maps, models, and tools to others within your organization and beyond in a way that fits well into their workflows.
ArcGIS Online gives you everything you need to create interactive web maps and apps that you can share with anyone. With ready-to-use content, apps, and templates, you can be productive right away. And no matter what you use—desktops, browsers, smartphones, or tablets—you always have access to your content.
