ESRI ArcGIS Powers New Recovery.gov Map

Interactive Web Map Shows Detailed Account of Where Stimulus Funds Are Going

Redlands, California — October 05, 2009 — The United States Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board recently launched the redesigned Recovery.gov Web site with a new interactive Web map based on ESRI geographic information system (GIS) software. The dynamic map shows where American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds have been awarded as well as recipient information.

Smartronix, the professional solutions provider heading up the redesign, uses ESRI’s ArcGIS Server to manage recovery data from federal agencies and display it on the map. ArcGIS Online services provide the basemap, and the ArcGIS API for Flex delivers easy navigation. In just a few clicks, visitors can see where stimulus funds have been invested in neighborhoods across the nation. Selecting a point on the map reveals information about each award such as amount, description, and award number.

During October, recovery fund recipients will begin reporting their use of funds to the government. By mid-to-late October, this information will be available in the interactive Recovery.gov map. Moving forward, the map will continue to show updated spending information to facilitate the transparency and accountability the legislation requires.

“The map on Recovery.gov makes it easy to understand vast amounts of information on investments around the country,” said Jack Dangermond, president, ESRI. “We are so pleased that the Recovery Board and Smartronix used GIS to integrate this important information and present it in a way that supports better analysis.”
