We all know it has been a tough year, with record snow.
Esri promoted this as the year GIS meets snow and ice removal, in part due to the hard work that transportation and public works professionals deal with on an annual basis. But now that the snow has begun to thaw, it is time to reflect on where and how we could have improved and, more importantly, if a location strategy could have played a more impactful role in supporting the work you do.

Esri worked diligently to identify the solutions that could deliver smarter, more effective ways to help you meet all of these demands. The public works and transportation professionals that applied GIS to the questions posed above have experienced a clear return on investment.
