Esri India Introduces Cloud Based GIS Platform

“GIS technology is moving from traditional use as a specialised problem solving tool to the core of enterprise applications” said Arvind Thakur, Chairman, NIIT-GIS Ltd. “ArcGIS Online is a new cloud based mapping system which transforms the way geographical information is managed and used”, he added.
AGOL provides open GIS capabilities to any user allowing access to any application, anywhere, anytime on any device. It facilitates sharing and use of geospatial content within groups of an organization, as well as between organizations and the public, providing a pervasive platform for services. This innovative platform will find use in many government programs such as public safety, health, utility, infrastructure and business applications like site suitability and location analytics. Individuals can benefit from improved citizen services.

 Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Dean Angelides, Corporate Director, International Operations at Esri Inc. said, “We are very excited with the launch of AGOL in India. As a global leader, we always strive hard to provide greater value to our users by enabling them to solve real world problems more effectively. Early adopters of ArcGIS Online have realized immediate benefits from extending their geographic information to reach more people within their organization and beyond”.

Globally, AGOL has been used in solving many significant challenges such as organizing and providing open access to global environmental information, more effective and coordinated responses to large-scale natural disasters, and enabling more efficient operations for global business enterprises.
