Beyond Maps: GIS Decision Making in Local Government
John O'LooneyISBN: 187910279X;
Geographic information systems (GIS) have become a fact of life in most large and small local governments, and the business of local government is to make decisions in the public interest. Using the varied case studies included, this comprehensive resource looks beyond the mechanics of systems and screens to show how local governments can make geographic information systems true management tools. By exploring the innovative ways to use GIS to improve local government operations, the case studies provide a framework of understanding of the unique capabilities of GIS and also allow imaginative individuals to explore new avenues for utilizing this increasingly important technology-a technology that helps integrate public values into decision making.
