Public works and engineering professionals are leading the modernization of their organizations through the power of place. Geographic information system (GIS) technology is highlighting how maps truly help run the world. Applied GIS is improving decision-making, increasing the efficiency and productivity of workflows, aiding in emergency response, reducing asset management costs, and preparing our communities for evolving resident needs. GIS helps public works departments keep the balance between equity, resiliency, and sustainability.
