GIS is making a difference
Throughout the UK, Esri’s ArcGIS geographic information system (GIS) technology is making a difference.
In some organisations, it is improving the efficiency of mobile teams by giving them the ability to access, collect and share data in the field. In others, it is revealing fresh insight into complex issues and putting better information into the hands of decision makers. Many more are using GIS to engage with communities and the general public and improve understanding. Whether you work in a small start-up, a large enterprise, a not-for-profit organisation or a public sector body, we want to celebrate how GIS is making a difference for you.

Proud to be recognised for the work we do
“All of us at Ramblers Scotland are proud to have won an Esri UK Customer Success Award and to be recognised for the work our Scottish Paths Map is doing to link communities. Being part of the awards and having a video created was a great experience. It has showcased how our project has evolved and how it is benefitting Scottish walkers. It was a special moment having our video played out to thousands of GIS professionals at the Annual Conference and then getting up on stage to receive our award. Thank you Esri UK for the opportunity to be part of the Customer Success Awards.”
