Advances in technology—from ubiquitous Internet access to cloud computing—have changed the way people expect to interact with governments. Citizens want to participate in planning decisions that will affect them, but it’s not enough to share plans using paper maps. Esri technology empowers governments and private firms to make dynamic maps that are available online so citizens can conveniently participate in the planning process. Use GIS to engage more community members, solicit robust feedback, and garner more success.
