Overall Satisfaction with ArcGIS

ArcGIS from the ESRI has become the Fedex corporate standard. We use its Geo-location services, Mapping services, helping operational research, and engineering planning, for optimizing the Fedex express/logistics network. Fedex uses ArgGIS to provide the geospatial
solutions that are extensible to multiple business applications by
providing GIS infrastructure to enable rapid integration of GIS
capabilities into global FedEx business applications.
  • ArcGIS is a great for displaying large amounts of geographic data. The online interactive platform ArcGIS Online is very useful.
  • The documentation of ArcGIS is very helpful and detail.
  • The graphical interface of ArcGis is user friendly.
  • ArcGIS is an powerful suite of applications and tools that all work together seamlessly for a complete desktop, mobile, and web solution.
  • The Python integration and REST API are make it more powerful and flexible, allowing you programmatically to access the data in a variety of ways.
  • The online help/forum changes too frequently.
  • Being the major paid GIS software, there is no real competition. But sometimes random crush will make the user disappointed.
  • Little bit too "black-box", any processes completed, ranging from geocoding to slope interpolations, do not have an exhaustive list of steps taken to reach the specific geo-coordinates, making understanding very difficult.
  • ArcGIS is one integrated solution, which allows engineering drawings, designs as well as calculations.
  • ArcGIS is one of the most efficient GIS data management tools.
  • The concept of geo-databases can be a little tricky/cumbersome to use.
  • google map
Google doesn't provide the full GIS stack, only covering part of our needs.
Very good for the big enterprise to study and improve the logistics network which is related to the GIS domain. Not suitable for the small business or study as the license fee is relatively high.
