Harmonise the built and natural worlds.

Before putting shovel to dirt, plan intelligently with 2D and 3D visualisation and analysis. That’s what we call geodesign. Geodesign helps you model scenarios and share information, considering the natural and built environments from the very first stages of planning. Esri brings a world of multidisciplinary data into engineering and construction workflows so you can better fulfill planning mandates, meet regulations, and weave resilience into your planning.



Bring together information from a variety of sources on the local environment and zoning regulations.


Develop planning scenarios with powerful analytical tools that predict future outcomes.


Engage stakeholders with collaborative tools early in the project life cycle.
