Public Access to Data
According to the United States Office of Management and Budget, more than 60 percent of all Internet users interact with government Web sites. E-government will save taxpayers a significant amount of money and add value to their experience with government as their needs are better served.
GIS technology supports Web standards and is often the engine of government portals. Esri's GIS is used to locate polling places, reserve campgrounds, report on traffic conditions, locate property for lease or sale, report crime statistics, identify planned development, and show the location of emergency events and their impact on the community.
The Internet has introduced a whole new way to interact with government. GIS makes that interaction more powerful and presents data in a form that makes viewing and understanding easy.
