Administrative Area Data Management is a configuration of ArcGIS Pro that can be used by mapping technicians to inventory and maintain administrative areas (geopolitical areas, school districts and attendance zones, voting precincts, public safety districts, and service boundaries). It can be used by planning, public safety, and elections organizations to streamline the collection, maintenance, and use of authoritative administrative area information.

Administrative areas fundamentally define geopolitical responsibilities and federal funding allocations; how education dollars are allocated and where children attend school; where citizens vote and who their elected representative is; who responds to a 911 call; and organize other services delivered by government agencies. Typically, this information is managed by local governments and used extensively to manage local government operations. Aggregating this data in to larger geographies (county, state, or federal) helps organizations address common needs and improve emergency response, voter registration, and census administration.
