This book shows how Global Information Systems (GIS) can be used for operations management in public institutions. It covers theory and practical applications, ranging from tracking public health trends to mapping transportation routes, to charting the safest handling of hazardous materials. Along with an expert line-up of contributors and case studies, the editors provide a complete overview of how to use GIS as part of a successful, collaborative data analysis, and how to translate the information into cost-saving decisions, or even life-saving ones.
