ArcGIS for Water Utilities is an evolutionary step in how Esri’s GIS technology can be deployed at water utilities. Over the last year we’ve had many conversations about how ArcGIS for Water Utilities enables water, sewer and stormwater utilities to take a better approach to meeting their GIS needs. We’ve found one of the most effective ways to communicate the “ArcGIS for Water Utilities Approach” is to compare it with two other approaches to meeting water utility GIS needs we’ve seen – “The Legacy Approach” and the “ArcGIS System Approach”.
What we call “The Legacy Approach” to meeting water utility GIS needs was an approach commonly used about 10 years ago. This approach was typified by water utilities building their GIS from the bottom up, often with many projects over a multi-year period. With this approach water utilities were spending a lot of time and money assembling a GIS platform and then creating customizations to perform industry common functions.
