Community Development

Green spaces, well-planned roads, recreation, and affordable housing—these features attract people to a community. Planners, economic developers, and urban designers depend on the smart maps and spatial analytics in Esri's ArcGIS software to find the best ways to deliver what people want—a high quality of life and sustainable growth.


Ease traffic and accelerate business growth

In Johns Creek, Georgia, the city makes data publicly available to enhance the lives of citizens. By sharing public works updates, such as road closures, in the traffic and navigation app Waze, the city helps drivers avoid delays. Using GIS software to give businesses access to data encourages them to develop apps, find new sites, and create services.
