Azavea is working with OMB Watch and Esri to develop a new online software tool that supports mapping of socioeconomic need against federal stimulus spending. To perform these calculations online requires significant performance improvements over existing geoprocessing tools. Azavea has developed a high performance distributed processing system, DecisionTree, to support highly scalable raster processing on the web. Presented at the 2011 Esri Federal User Conference.
