About the Author

Since 1997, Esri Press has grown to be an award-winning leader in publishing books about the science, application, and technology of GIS. With books offered in print, e-book, and web formats, it continues to develop its dedication to facilitating access to and dissemination of geographic literature through publications.


All of us have our own stories to tell; how and where we started, our accomplishments, our challenges, our most successful dreams realized. This book tells us how we can use maps, analysis and geographic information systems (GIS) to motivate and develop our lives and others. The women's sorties in this book definitely encourage us to succeed as individuals and as WON members. I can so identify with their stories! WON members and all women can and do make a difference in our government. We are the force!

--Bronwyn Asplund-Walsh, President, National Association of Counties Women (WON)
