Inform decisions. Communicate with constituents.
Modern governments use GIS to inform policy making and reach constituents. GIS takes big data and makes it easy to understand so that policy makers can make decisions based on evidence and evaluate impacts by geography. In the U.S., both the White House and Congress use GIS to shed light on the nations most pressing challenges. Issues like spending, labor, healthcare, energy, environment, and border security all have geographic components and affect citizens everywhere. Maps provide the bridge connecting policy makers with the public, and open data efforts are fueling the creation of more maps than ever before.
