U.S. DOT Uses GIS to Show ARRA Spending

Web Mapping Application Gives Details of Projects and Funding

REDLANDS, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 27, 2009 — The United States Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) is using ESRI geographic information system (GIS) technology to report American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) spending at arra-gis.dot.gov. The online map provides information about dollars obligated and projects pending in states and territories at the county and congressional district levels.

Once a geographic region is selected, visitors can easily access project details including federal funding amount and description. The application also allows searches according to U.S. DOT agencies: aviation, transit, maritime, highways, and rail.

U.S. DOT has long used ESRI technology to visualize and analyze mission-critical information and support decision making. With this new Web mapping application, the department continues to leverage its investment in GIS and use its comprehensive authoritative data.

"The U.S. DOT is sharing important information with citizens in a way that is easily accessible and understood," says ESRI president Jack Dangermond. "It is a great example of how government can use GIS and Gov 2.0 technology to improve government services and deliver transparency and accountability."
