Mapping the Nation Illustrates Broad Government Use of Esri GIS

Redlands, California— March 01, 2012—Esri has released the second in the Mapping the Nation series, Mapping the Nation: Government and Technology Making a Difference. Including more than 100 full-color maps produced by 40 government agencies, it clearly illustrates how GIS technology can be used to evaluate and respond to social, economic, and environmental concerns at local, regional, national, and global levels.

"Geography is a common denominator in everything the federal government supports," says Christopher Thomas, director, government markets—federal, state, local at Esri. "The maps in this book attest to the limitless power of geography and GIS technology and show how government agencies rely on GIS analysis to facilitate initiatives, improve transparency, and deliver strong business models."
