ArcGIS

ArcGIS is pretty much well suited for any spatial analysis needs you may have. It is not good if you are doing extremely simple tasks or just need a basic figure, because the time necessary for preparing things in ArcGIS will be too much. ArcGIS is great for complex data analysis where there are multiple factors over a large area.

Mapbox

Mapbox is great if you have a BI or Data Visualization problem while working with either large datasets or you want a high level of control on the design of your geospatial data. Also fantastic options for integrating maps onto your website or into your Android or iOS app. Basically, if you need a map in any shape, way, or form and you want a lot of detailed control over it, Mapbox is the way to go.

Pros

  • Geo-referencing of data for the exact location of an object for the planning and development of the territory.
  • Is a program with excellent work tools for visualization, administration, editing, calculation, analysis of entities and attributes geo-referenced in different jobs.
  • Contains multiple work tools that allow the elaboration of cartography with thematic layers previously identified by a characteristic indicated when starting to work in ArcGIS.

  • Excellent documentation and worked examples makes it easy for newbies to get started.
  • Works well across web or mobile platforms.
  • Clean looking default map styles make your designs look professional.
  • Since it is built on top of Leaflet.js, it is easily extensible. So any feature or function that is not available within the Mapbox.js API can be imported from other API's.

Cons

  • I consider it difficult to use, it has an interface that needs to be studied to offer the user the use of the applications in a simpler and simpler way.
  • It is an expensive program that requires the investment of a large sum of money, which can be used to modify other work areas.
  • Is a program that requires a greater installed capacity of the computer so that the tools work correctly, being a disadvantage that can generate a delay in the delivery of the work.

  • Can sometimes struggle to load very large datasets but this is understandable
  • Learning how to design maps is a bit of a learning curve

Simply because the program deserves it. It seems to me that it is a fundamental tool for the storage, analysis, and interpretation of medium and large-scale phenomena, unmanageable with traditional engineering software. Its versatility in the handling of the different "layers" with which the data is handled and interpolation tools, make this software a powerful ally both for companies and for the educational part of the universities.

Usability

ArcGIS6.0
Based on 1 answer
It is a program that requires hours of dedication for learning the tools in order to understand it and use it to the best of its abilities.It requires tutorials or attend training activities to easily and uncomplicatedly perform a geographic information system. Experience tells me that a lot of work time is required to learn correctly the use of tools. It is a program of quality and the most complete of the market, but it is required to simplify its processes so that more people can use it.

Alternatives Considered

ArcGIS can do more than Tableau when it comes to mapping and spatial analysis. However, Tableau can be used to do many different tables, graphs, and data analysis that ArcGIS cannot.

One feature that made me go in favor of Mapbox was its stellar documentation. Google Maps and Bing Maps are the other alternatives I considered, but the learning curve with both of them is steeper than it is with Mapbox. Also, Mapbox Studio gives newbies a very simple, clean and easy to use environment to make and store maps online

Return on Investment

  • ArcGIS is great for showing data in a way that people can easily understand.
  • ArcGIS is pretty expensive so this might play a role in whether your company wants to invest in this product.
  • ArcGIS is not user-friendly, some training is required to be able to make these maps or do more advanced spatial analyses.

  • Fantastic presentation and quality allows for some great user experiences
  • Scalable and seamless overall
  • Pricing is fair and clear making it a very transparent process
