Mapping for Congress: Supporting Public Policy with GIS
Mapping for Congress: Supporting Public Policy with GIS illustrates how GIS technology is used to provide policy makers and citizens with information about public policy issues in the form of a map. The book profiles the work of the Library of Congress Geography and Map Division’s Congressional Cartography Program, detailing how Library of Congress GIS professionals are able to help members of Congress and congressional staff understand public policy issues in a geographic context. Mapping for Congress includes more than 30 maps highlighting national trends and providing insight into how these patterns might influence current and future public policy.
