GIS is helping GreenSquare, which manages 10,000 homes in the U.K., to more efficiently research its development decisions. The housing group had relied on site visits to choose new locations, but now, thanks to Esri software, the company can overlay geographic information on maps for more efficient planning. "We can see property types, access routes, who owns what land and all the other local factors we need to consider in an initial investigation," said GreenSquare's Dawn Francis.
