Mapping the Nation: Pioneering a New Platform for Government
Mapping the Nation: Pioneering a New Platform for Government is a collection of maps developed by US federal agencies using both desktop and web-based geographic information system (GIS) tools and applications. The book shows how these tools are used daily by federal employees, officials, and in some cases by the public, to gather, analyze, and respond to questions and challenges that range from the common to the catastrophic. More than twenty-five agencies across nine US departments have contributed maps on subjects such as ecoregions, disaster planning, census distributions, hydrography, and pollution remediation. This book demonstrates how government's use of GIS encourages citizen involvement, fosters understanding among divergent perspectives, and offers a new platform from which to compare and exchange information.
