ArcGIS Hub

Transform how you engage and collaborate with your community

Part of Esri Geospatial Cloud, ArcGIS Hub is an easy-to-configure community engagement platform that organises people, data and tools through information-driven initiatives. Organisations of any type and any size, including government agencies, utilities, commercial bodies, non-profit groups and academia, can maximise engagement, communication, collaboration and data sharing using the ArcGIS Hub initiative-based approach. With ArcGIS Hub, organisations can leverage their existing data and technology and work together with internal and external stakeholders to track progress, improve outcomes and create vibrant communities.    

What ArcGIS Hub can do for you

Share open data

Data is vital to decision-making. Whether you are choosing a neighbourhood to live in, curious about city projects, or opening a new business, having information you can trust is essential. With ArcGIS Hub, organisations can share their authoritative data so the community can make better decisions.

Create unlimited websites

Create as many websites and web pages as you need with no coding required. Simply drag and drop components. Incorporate your organisation's logos and styles to match existing websites, and share data, maps, and apps on your sites. Use the sites you make to engage your community.

Organise around initiatives

Sharing open data is the first step on the journey to effective community engagement. Give your data purpose and align it with your organisation's top priorities by organising around initiatives. Any real-world issue, mission, or project can become an initiative in your hub.

Enable collaboration

ArcGIS Hub makes it easy to create teams comprising staff, external community members, or both. You can invite trusted members of the community to collaborate with your organisation, which will increase your staff's ability to solve problems.

Inspire action

Initiatives can drive engagement by giving community members a goal to rally around as well as a focused way to participate. Presenting information via charts, maps, and stories makes it easier for everyone to have a shared understanding of the goal, which can pave the way to action.

Benefit from a full system

Unlike other solutions that require piecing tools together, ArcGIS Hub comes with everything you'll need: integrated event management, surveys, and more. Work done in your hub also feeds directly back into your organisation's operational systems.
