Mapping the Nation: GIS for Good Governance is a collection of maps that illustrate how geographic understanding forms a solid foundation for good governance in the United States and around the world. Geographic information system (GIS) technology enables decision makers to quickly discern and resolve constituent needs by collaborating across all levels of government. Examples in this book explain how agencies and legislators use GIS to solve problems and inspire and coordinate action.
