Spatial Analysis for Public Policy

Modern governments are interconnected and reliant on technology more than ever before. For public policy professionals, this means sorting through more data and communicating with constituents faster. The ubiquity and pervasiveness of technology has led citizens to demand dialog and expect transparency.

Recognizing that nearly every decision of policy makers is geospatial, public policy professionals at all levels of government are leveraging geographic information system (GIS) technology to better understand who they serve and what problems their community faces.
