ArcGIS: Geographic Information Software with Max Payson

Geospatial analytics tools are used to render visualizations for a vast array of applications. Data sources such as satellites and cellular data can gather location data, and that data can be superimposed over a map. A map-based visualization can allow the end user to make decisions based on what they see.

ArcGIS is one of the most widely used geospatial analytics platforms. It is created by ESRI, the Environmental Systems Research Institute, which was started in 1969. Today, ESRI products have 40% of the global market share of geospatial analytics software.

Max Payson is a solutions engineer at ESRI, and he joins the show to talk about applications of ArcGIS, and the landscape of GIS more broadly.

It’s hard to get engineering resources to build back-office apps, and even harder to get engineers excited about maintaining them. The idea is that all internal tools kinda look the same – they’re made of tables, dropdowns, buttons, text inputs, etc. Retool gives you a drag and drop interface so engineers can build these internal UIs in hours, not days, and spend more time building features customers will see. Visit retool.com/sedaily to learn more.
