- Table Of ContentsPart 1. Understanding GIS
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology offers vast analytic capability. Part 1 highlights the evolution of GIS technology and includes interviews with leaders in government who discuss advances in the use of GIS technology for a wide variety of purposes.
Part 2. Using GIS to Support Policy Decisions
From making decisions about land use planning or managing natural resources to identifying where food deserts exist in an urban area, GIS gives decision makers an important tool for better understanding the impacts of their decisions and explaining those decisions to their constituents. Part 2 features case studies that highlight the many different GIS applications that governments at all levels have developed to make better policy.
Part 3. Streamlining Government Operations with GIS
Part 3 focuses on how GIS technology can help streamline government operations. From a ground-breaking study that explores return on investment (ROI) resulting from the development of the GIS program in King County, Washington, to numerous examples of how new efficiencies were achieved using GIS, the case studies in this section offer important lessons in what can be accomplished with a little creativity and innovation.
Part 4. Building a Strong GIS Program
The final section to this volume outlines what elected officials need to know in order to provide much needed support to their own GIS program. Decisions makers need not become technical wizards in order to make decisions that result in a robust GIS program.
