National governments use geographic information system (GIS) technology to manage programs and evaluate policy outcomes. With GIS, agency staff and leaders integrate diverse types of data to derive understanding, operationalize solutions, communicate insights, and engage stakeholders and the public. 


Using GIS to incorporate location intelligence into high-level decision-making provides powerful insights on critical issues the nation faces, and supports science- and analysis-based policy making.
