Since the beginning of civilization, humans have used images as a means to tell stories. We have used images to educate, entertain or to build a just and moral society. Our ancient ancestors would use images to remember stories and archive information for future generations. Similar to our ancient ancestors, we use images today to convey meaning, understand complex relationships and improve communication.
The use of mapping and geospatial technology is at the heart of story telling and improved communications. As the challenges of the public sector continue to grow in complexity, efficient and effective communication tools are essential. Today, government is more interconnected than ever before, and the complexity has led to increased integration between state, local and federal officials. At all levels of government, agencies are looking for solutions to find value and improve public sector decision-making through data. http://www.govloop.com/profiles/blogs/govloop-guide-the-mapping-revolution-incorporating-geographic-inf
