Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

At South West Water, we use ESRI's ArcGIS platform to map and record our assists for the Bournemouth Water area. This involves the location-based mapping of our water network (pipes/valves/meters etc) across the area in relation to surrounding environment (customer properties/various land owners) and recording information about our assets e.g.: pipe diameters, installed dates, repairs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

There is a high level of detail regarding the number of types of different features which can be placed. The portal is very user-friendly for those around the business who use the GIS system. Additionally, the network modelling team find the system very compatible with the modelling system which they use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Compared to the other GIS system we use for the main South West Water GIS, the system lacks a full "node-edge" connectivity model whereby features can be broken and connected (e.g. by new water joints being added). Additionally the turning on and off of different features can be a little complex, as sometimes the features are turned on but are not selectable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

To ensure you have a clear idea of what you are trying to achieve with using the ESRI software. There are many fantastic tools available which can be used to help solve all manner of problems across various industries. The key to achieving you desired outcome is to select which tools most appropriate to achieve your specific aims and which are compatible with exisiting software and processes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

With the ESRI ArcGIS software, this helps us accurate locate our underground assets and identify areas with a history of bursts/leaks, which can then be used to drive decision-making surrounding asset replacement or pressure management of systems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

I led an effort automating the geospatial analysis and live display of over 800 layers of data. The project lasted 3 years and was a spectacular success. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I and my team got a lot of close sport from some of the top brains at ESRI. And all we had to do was to ask. Not that there’s anything wrong with their regular lines of support because we used that extensively as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There was a lot of hesitation on ESRI’s part when ER first started this project because it went beyond just mapping. We both learned a lot from the experience and ESRI is now squarely in the middle of the real time GIS world. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

I have been using ESRI solutions since 1980. I was at one time a competitor to them. ESRI has a cumulative bank of geospatial knowhow that cannot be matched. They are the definition of geospatial data as Microsoft is of Windows. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

I use ESRI to solve real time geospatial problems. In the above project, one of the significant benefits was to reduce our response time from 90+ minutes to under 10. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

I am quite familiar with ArcMap which represents geographic information as a collection of layers and other elements in a map view. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

As a geologist, I use ESRI services quite often cause they provide many useful tools related to cartography. GIS technology continues to play an important role in the study of the earth. Through GIS, geologists have been able to identify and figure out the puzzle that is the earth surface. Some of the sections where ESRI's tools are useful are mapping, urban planning, land information system, surveying, detection of coal mine fires, coastal management, land use changes, land administration and worldwide earthquake information system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The high cost of the license is ESRI's biggest disadvantage. Specifically, license and training cost is extremely high for young graduates around the world. As a MSc student in Engineering Geology, i find it very difficult to continue paying the lisence for as long as I would like. It would be really heplful to lower the prices for young scientists for a specific time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

ESRI provides one of the most complete and efficient tool for making maps, vector layers or raster. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

I am working primarily in projects associated to soil erosion and other environmental issues, so ESRI's tools are used for GIS-based modeling. The combined use of GIS and erosion models has been proved to be an effective approach for estimating the magnitude and spatial distribution of soil erosion. The application of soil erosion equations in erosion models became more reliable and accurate, because GIS tools (such as those provided by ESRI) provide the opportunity of processing and saving all spatial and non-spatial data that are necessary for erosion prediction and calculation.
