GIS for Stimulus Reporting
As money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) is invested in communities around the United States, all levels of government must show where and how they are spending taxpayer dollars. GIS provides transparency and context to this data, making it the ideal tool for accountability reporting.
Using GIS on the Web shows citizens how investments impact their neighborhoods and helps government leaders make informed decisions for the greatest good.
