Beyond Great Ideas

From Open Government to Open Data, the current administration calls for new innovative ideas, tools, and improved policies that reform government and make it smarter, more efficient, more transparent, more collaborative, more responsive, and better serves the American people. Innovation itself is at the forefront of the “American Dream” and drives our nation’s competitiveness. But to change the path of government, innovation needs to go beyond great ideas and become enmeshed with the infrastructure in place. Through GIS, innovative maps and applications are inspiring and enabling raw data and great ideas to be put to action; transforming government and the world around us.
