about this item
Mapping the Nation: Building Smart Government with GIS is a collection of GIS maps illustrating the many ways that federal government agencies rely on GIS analysis to build stronger, more resilient nations and help make the world a better place. Pulled from a broad range of departments, maps included in the book demonstrate how the technology can be used to evaluate, plan and respond to social, economic, and environmental concerns at local, regional, national, and global levels. These examples on topics such as safe nations, public policy, health, climate resiliency, and more show how government agencies use GIS to facilitate initiatives, improve transparency, and deliver strong business models.
