Overall Satisfaction with ArcGIS

My organization engages is civil engineering projects related to transportation planning, traffic operations and safety planning. We support the Iowa DOT on their projects. We use ArcGIS extensively for working with geospatial data such as traffic and vehicle locations, crash sites, pavement monitoring sites etc. We use geodatabes and shapefiles extensively for handling large data sets. We also use queries to find specific information.
  • Storing information in the form of shapefiles is a big advantage
  • Using geodatabases to work with large data sets is a strength of ArcGIS
  • The ability to solve spatial problems using ArcGIS is a great tool
  • Publishing online maps is a great feature
  • Improvement in processing speed using CPUs
  • Importing CSV files could be made smoother
  • The pricing is too high to fully leverage using all the software's capabilities
  • Supporting clients' projects.
  • Great resource for reports and technical documents.
  • Great return on investment for the services it offers (although the price could be brought down a bit).
Much better than any other similar product in the market.
Support could be improved slightly.

Do you think ArcGIS delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with ArcGIS's feature set?


Did ArcGIS live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of ArcGIS go as expected?


Would you buy ArcGIS again?


The software is a great tool for working and manipulating spatial data, creating and publishing maps, reports and pdf documents. It can import data from spreadsheets. It can be used to solve complex spatial problems. It is not well suited for analyzing data that does not have a geospatial component.
