The demand on local government to do more with less by improving operations, increasing productivity, and making better and more informed decisions increases constantly. On a departmental level Geographic Information Systems are helping meet this demand but the majority of local government organizations do not take the time to understand the GIS needs and opportunities of each and every department.

This book:

  • Discusses how towns, cities and counties and their specific departments should actually use GIS
  • Explains the best ways to use GIS tools through many specific case studies and step by step instructions
  • Emphasises local government needs first before offering solutions
  • Gives readers a practical and understandable way of thinking about managing and making GIS successful
  • This book is the guide that details best GIS applications and practices for the 34 departments in local government that can, and should, use GIS technology. It explains in details how, why, and what each department should implement, a clear and understandable explanation of departmental GIS.
