Data Management

Get the Most Out of Your Data

Any GIS system is only as good as the data that's in it. ArcGIS provides a complete set of tools that give you the flexibility to store, edit, and manage data in a way that fits with your existing processes.

Store Data

ArcGIS allows you to access, use, and store GIS data using the method that fits and optimizes your existing workflows.


Edit Data

Use ArcGIS to compile and manage geographic data layers that power your GIS. ArcGIS provides a comprehensive suite of editing tools and workflows.


Harness Big Data

ArcGIS helps you take control of big data so it can be analyzed and visualized from a geographic perspective. It brings together not only massive volumes of data but also data of disparate types.

Integrate Your Enterprise

ArcGIS integrates with data stored in your existing business systems to extend their analytical capabilities. ArcGIS enhances your business intelligence, collaboration, productivity, and customer relationship management systems.

Set Data Rules and Relationships

ArcGIS maintains your data integrity and simplifies data management when the data is stored in a geodatabase. You can define relationships, such as networks and topologies, between your datasets and set rules, such as domains and subtypes, for individual datasets.

Manage Metadata

Metadata describes the content, quality, origin, and other characteristics of data. It's data about data. Complete and accurate metadata is required to have reliable, quality data. ArcGIS supports custom and standard metadata profiles, including FGDC, ISO, INSPIRE, and Dublin Core.

Secure Your Data

ArcGIS is designed to support your organization's specific security requirements and gives you flexibility and control over how your GIS platform is deployed, maintained, secured, and used.

Data management is a key aspect of the ArcGIS platform.
