Supporting Native American decision-making
Native American policy makers, administrators, scientists, and instructors can use geographic information system (GIS) technology to make their tribal organizations more efficient and effective. GIS helps leaders find solutions to issues related to tribal lands and in tribal programs on a local, regional, and national level.
Many federally recognized tribes have access to ArcGIS software and can leverage GIS tools to create positive impacts in their communities. Tribal staff can use GIS and the spatial perspective to improve communication, decision-making, and efficiency in their organizations.
As some of the earliest adopters of GIS technology, Native American tribal governments have used GIS to support thousands of programs and initiatives.
