Natural resource managers—biologists, botanists, ecologists, environmental regulators, hydrologists, planners, petroleum and mining engineers, foresters and farmers — rely on the analytical power of GIS for help in making critical decisions to manage, preserve and restore the earth's resources. Whether it is about restoring habitats, planting crops, drilling for oil, blasting for gold or monitoring endangered species the ArcGIS platform helps in gaining a deeper understanding of the problem and in bringing more accurate information and less guesswork to the table.
Eastern Africa is home to one of the most biologically diversity ecosystems but also one that is equally most endangered. Conservation, government and business organization are collaboratively engaged in the hard task of managing this biodiversity for current and future generations
Thanks to the mapping, analysis and, data management and sharing capabilities of the ArcGIS platform these organizations can determining species distribution, monitor and restore habitats, mitigate conflicts and minimize degradation and poaching.
Mining & Exploration
Mining is inherently spatial, requiring accurate knowledge of areas of the earth's surface and subsurface. GIS gives mining companies the tools they need to operate mines responsibly and at optimum efficiency and intelligently oversee all phases of the mine operation.
The ArcGIS platform is used by mining companies to target mineral exploration, evaluate mining conditions, model mine construction, display geochemical, hydrological and other data, manage mining permits, assessing environmental impact and designing closure and reclamation plans.
GIS helps transform petroleum exploration, production and transmission information into actionable intelligence.
The ArcGIS platform is used in rights acquisition, seismic planning, exploration, drilling, production, distribution, pipeline and data management.
