ESRI develops software and custom applications for the creation, management, analysis, and visualization of spatial data. A key piece of this is a modeling framework which consists of over 700 tools for compilation and editing, spatial analysis, and cartographic map production. These tools can be combined into custom analysis tasks using a graphical modeling environment or using the Python scripting language. The system can be extended with additional capabilities using Python. Once built, these models and workflows can be easily shared with other users.
