GIS for Everyone

  1. 1. GIS for Everyone Enterprise License Agreements for Federal Government
  2. 2. GIS Drives Innovation Federal agencies need to deliver solutions that open data, simplify analysis and planning, increase operational awareness, and engage citizens. Esri geographic information system (GIS) technology supports these goals. Maps and location analytics make it easier to understand data, plan ahead, act quickly, and create apps that citizens want to use. An Esri enterprise license agreement (ELA) is a purchasing program that streamlines software procurement and implementation. Agencies throughout the federal government have Esri ELAs for broad access to the latest GIS technology that is so critical to their missions. With ELAs, agencies can provide unlimited amounts of the most current Esri software, which is on the GSA Schedule, to all staff members so they have the best tools for innovation. Even people without any GIS experience can use applications that improve services and collaboration.

  3. 3. United States Senate Senators and their legislative staff use GIS to research critical issues and communicate with the public in a new way. Idaho Senator James Risch provides a map gallery on his website showing information including air pollution, active wildfires, crime, and the percent of people without health insurance in the state. Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal uses GIS to tell stories like Lyme disease rates by town. “Mapping has been extraordinarily valuable for us and we want to see more.” —Dan Pollock, New Media Director for Senator Richard Blumenthal United States Census Bureau For the Census Bureau, geography is a key component of all its activities. The bureau uses GIS in each census operation, from the first activities of address canvassing to final data delivery. Chief of the Geography Division at the Census Bureau Tim Trainor estimates the 2010 Census was one of the largest deployments of mobile GIS in the world. “We’re using GIS in the field to make things easier and faster.” —Tim Trainor, Chief of the Geography Division, US Census Bureau United States Department of Homeland Security The Department of Homeland Security uses GIS to turn raw data into information that’s easy to understand and act on. Mapping data about security threats makes it easier to see complex relationships at a glance for better decision making and more targeted response. “We want to improve access to geospatial resources across all operating networks and use geospatial technology to facilitate meaningful information sharing that helps not only connect the dots but also make those connections more understandable through geospatial visualization and maps.” —David Alexander, Director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Geospatial Management Office

  5. 5. Achieve Your Goals When federal staff members have the GIS software they need, they can apply it in limitless ways. Data Creation—The federal government creates data that drives innovation. ArcGIS makes it easy to publish data that anyone can use to develop new solutions that meet modern needs. Analysis and Planning—Geography-based analysis generates powerful insight because most data is tied to a specific location. Use GIS to see connections and patterns that would otherwise be missed. Field Mobility—Using GIS outside the office enhances job performance and urgent decision making. Mobile workers save time updating data on-site, and office staff get updates in real time. Civic and Government Engagement Operational Awareness—Seeing the factors at play on a map provides decision support and informs public policy. For natural disasters or even simple resource tracking, it’s easy to see where need is greatest and where money is being spent. Civic and Government Engagement—Creating relevant apps that staff and citizens want to use is essential. Opening data through all levels of government and with the public fosters collaboration and meets standards for openness. Operational Awareness $ $
