REDLANDS, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 25, 2016 — Esri National Government Manager for Emerging Markets, Marcella Cavallaro will lead a one-hour panel discussion on DATA Act legislation at the DATA Act Summit on Thursday, May 26. The discussion will focus on the recent release of DATA Act and the approaching deadline of May 2017 for agencies to comply with the schema.
Cavallaro will be joined by acting USPS Inspector General Tammy Whitcomb; Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz; Department of Housing and Urban Development Inspector General David A. Montoya; and Jim Lisle, DATA Act working group chair from the Department of Treasury.
“Incorporating location into analytic workflows not only allows you to see where places are physically located, but understand how they relate to each other and interact,” said Cavallaro. “Esri’s spatial analysis tools detect patterns with more certainty, which helps to combat fraud, reduce waste, and improve oversight.”
Esri works with a number of inspector general organizations to help them use spatial data and analysis tools in accountability, transparency, and anti-fraud workflows as well as many congressional offices to promote open government and transparency.
