ArcGIS Solutions for Non-Profits

Posted by Emma Paz on Aug 22, 2014 11:13:43 AM

I wanted to reflect today on the outstanding efforts of non-profit organizations all around us. From healthcare to environmental stewardship, it’s amazing how much hard work is getting done out there via research, grant-writing, projects and public outreach.

If we focus on research, we should note that a lot of the value of information these days comes by way of spatial data--meaning, tagging every bit of detail to a specific location. Thank goodness for GIS, right?


Of course! Especially when there is powerful software (like Esri’s ArcGIS for Desktop) that is also accessible at reasonable prices for hard-working non-profit organizations that can show how much of an impact visualizing data could make on their end goals.

For more information on the application process, check out Esri’s direct link:

And, once you are up and running with ArcGIS? Well, that’s when you contact us at ROK. We’ll be glad to set you up on the Cloud (where you can automatically elevate your GIS into Enterprise mode), host your GIS data, offer GIS best-practices advice, and develop any custom web/mobile mapping solutions that you may have been dreaming of all this time.

Happy mapping,
