The GIS Guide for Elected Officials is a valuable resource for government officials who want to better understand how to use geographic information systems (GIS) to answer location-based questions such as the following:

The use cases in The GIS Guide for Elected Officials show the wide range of problems GIS can help solve, including determining potential markets for a start-up business, responding to the needs of a community during a disaster, and identifying urban food deserts. Designed to enable governments to learn from the experience of others, this volume also includes a review of what it takes to build and maintain a strong GIS program in light of rapidly changing technology and shrinking government budgets.

The GIS Guide for Elected Officials is also available as an e-book (ISBN 9781589483538, $19.99) and can be purchased at most e-book retailers.
