Data and Good Government

Data and Good Government

Governments today are being asked to do more with less. But even as budgets are stretched thin, new tools in data and mapping have made it possible for governments to accomplish more by making better decisions, targeting efforts where they’re needed most.

Many governments have already embraced the power of data and mapping, and tools are available to help them make the most of their efforts. For governments that already have robust data and GIS operations, user-friendly data and mapping tools allow experts to focus on the advanced work they’re capable of doing by empowering non-GIS experts to answer questions on their own.
