This is a behind-the-scenes look at how some of America's most successful companies have used ArcView GIS software from ESRI to:
  • uncover market opportunities
  • evaluate new locations
  • make sense of survey data

Ten real world case studies feature such well known national firms as Ace Hardware Corp., Chase Manhattan Bank, Gold Gym Enterprises, and the US Postal Service. In other case studies, GIS is used to manage national sales territories, create high-quality maps, analyze health care facilities, and create a real estate market information system.
