GIS & BIM


Esri’s software, ArcGIS, is the most powerful mapping and analytics software in the world. We pioneer problem solving through GIS and recognise that the digital revolution in the construction industry, driven by BIM processes, requires geospatial and design data to be used together. As the global market leader in GIS we have partnered with Autodesk to put GIS and BIM at the centre of construction projects. Together we are driving smarter decisions, optimised designs, accelerated project approvals and reduced cost, to create smarter cities and a resilient infrastructure.
