New Esri Book Makes the Case for Using GIS in Government

Redlands, California—August 07, 2012—Measuring Up: The Business Case for GIS, Volume 2, provides a collection of real-world stories from local government agencies that have used GIS technology to achieve success. Chapters focus on how implementing automated GIS workflow and resource management solutions helps organizations save time and money, increase accuracy and efficiency, and maximize productivity and revenue. Lead author Christopher Thomas is director of government marketing for Esri.

The articles in this collection illustrate how GIS is used to implement new, more efficient business processes and how these emerging practices have improved communities and organizations. The case studies show how investing in GIS provides a common language for discussion that brings stakeholders together in the decision-making process. Many of the included organizations are realizing a quantifiable return on investment by integrating GIS into their information systems.

In the book's foreword, Esri president Jack Dangermond writes, "Measuring Up provides insight into the innovation that comes from looking at problems spatially and the value GIS brings to improving efficiencies, decision making, planning, communication, and collaboration while creating transparency. In essence, the book shows the role GIS plays in supporting a government that is more accountable to the world we impact and the citizens we serve."
