Mapping the Nation: Building Smart Government with GIS
Mapping the Nation: Building Smart Government with GIS is a collection of maps that illustrates the many ways federal government agencies use GIS to build stronger, more resilient nations and help make the world a better place. Pulled from a broad range of departments, the maps included in the book demonstrate how GIS can be used to evaluate, plan, and respond to social, economic, and environmental concerns at the local, regional, national, and global levels. Examples on topics such as safe nations, public policy, health, and climate resiliency show how government agencies use GIS to facilitate initiatives, improve transparency, and deliver strong business models.
