Improving Infrastructure with GIS
Many governments, of all sizes globally and locally, are facing increasing infrastructure demands to accommodate our world’s growing population. Join U.S. Assistant Secretary of Interior Dr. Tim Petty and the European Commission Policy Officer for the Environment Hugo De Groof for a conversation moderated by Esri CEO Jack Dangermond on how the two governing bodies are tackling this global challenge with the Science of Where and GIS.
GIS is an essential platform for government planning and decision making. From expediting the permitting process for infrastructure investment to routine investment maintenance and homeland security to resiliency planning, GIS is critical to understanding our world.
It is a platform of record that helps government better plan and manage infrastructure projects. It is a platform of engagement that lets leaders demonstrate return on investment by sharing open data with constituents. And GIS is also a platform of insight that helps agencies make smarter investments in the future of our environment and global infrastructure.
