GIS Mapping is an effective crisis management tool
Cities and municipal governments can use GIS mapping systems to offer situational awareness to the first responders of local crimes and large-scale threats. Additionally, municipalities are using GIS in the wake of natural disasters to provide accurate representations of power outages, road closures, and heavily damaged areas – to keep everyone safe and informed. Thanks to the immediacy of digitized mapping systems, cities can keep their citizens alert and aware, no matter the situation or threat.
GIS Mapping can be a valuable resource in the classroom
Schools can utilize GIS in several ways to engage students using authentic, real-world data. The interactive features in digital maps can allow students to learn how their city has changed over time, or to research trends in areas all over the county. By studying these digital maps, students can engage with real-world problems at any grade level. By incorporating relevant, significant data, students will learn faster and retain information longer.
Retail businesses can benefit from GIS Mapping
With MyGov’s geographic mapping, stores can track purchases, product popularity, even locational performance. GIS mapping can help retailers determine what type of site is right for their store, identify and understand exactly where competitors are in relation to their own store, and manage delivery routes.
Geographic mapping is essential for public transportation
We know that public transportation has the potential to take up a huge part of any agency’s time. With the constant upkeep of roads and highways, as well as the coordination of public transportation routes, agencies must have easy access to all data in one convenient place. With MyGov’s GIS mapping, governments can keep detailed data that outlines the state of roadways and assets, that can be accessed at any time, from anywhere.
GIS Mapping contributes to community health
Healthcare providers can map the most beneficial locations for hospitals, clinics, and human services with spatial data. GIS can even reduce the spread of illness by tracking the geographic location of outbreaks and at-risk areas, allowing agencies to respond quickly as outbreaks occur and targeting intervention. With MyGov’s geographic mapping system, communities are healthier, and your agency can rest assured that your citizens are being well taken care of.
