Desktop GIS

Create, edit, and analyze geographic
data on your desktop computer.

See your data on a map.

Analyze your data to reveal patterns,
relationships, and trends that are not
readily apparent in tabular format.

Create publication quality,
professional maps.

ArcGIS Desktop is software that
allows you to discover patterns,
relationships, and trends in your
data that are not readily apparent
in databases, spreadsheets, or
statistical packages.

Desktop GIS

software includes:

ArcGIS Desktop

ArcGIS Engine


ArcGIS Desktop

Desktop GIS


You have all the
data and processing
at your station


You must invest in
the processor and
storage space

Data and maps are
not easily shared

Mobil GIS

Mobile GIS is the expansion of a
geographic information system (GIS)
from the office into the field. A
mobile GIS enables field based
personnel to capture, store, update,
manipulate, analyze, and display
geographic information.

Mobile GIS integrates one or more
of the following technologies:

Mobile devices

ArcGIS Mobile


StreetMap Mobile Software Developer Kit

Global Positioning Systems (GPS)

Wireless communications for Internet
GIS access

Mobile GIS



Allows for some
map processing


Minimal storage

Need a desktop for
most processing

Web Based GIS

Access 2D maps, 3D globes, reference
layers, and functional tasks via the Web to
support your GIS work.

Contribute your own data for publishing
through ArcGIS Online and make it
broadly available to other users.

Purchase the data you see in ArcGIS
Online and publish it on your own server.

Web Based GIS


Minimal processor
and storage space

Many data sets

The processor on
the web server is
likely to be more
powerful than your
desktop unit


Must have a fast
network connection

Data resides off site

Dependent on
resources off site,
not under your

Collaborative GIS

Web Based GIS where multiple users
can add data to a single map.

Collaborative GIS


Allows for input

Multiple Users

Multiple Data Sets

Multiple Perspectives


Lack of control over
input to the map
and revisions
