Mapping the Nation: Supporting Decisions That Govern a People


Esri Press


135 pages



This book illustrates how geographic information system (GIS) technology is being used by agencies of the US Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, State, Transportation, and Veterans Affairs, as well as the US Postal Service, the US Agency for International Development, the US General Services Administration, and the Navajo Nations, to evaluate and respond to social, economic, and environmental issues at local, regional, national, and global levels. Chapters are organized by agency and provide examples of specific activities and projects (with maps), such as income and poverty estimates, health care safety measures, migration flows, and sea level rise and coastal flooding impacts.
