The GIS guide for elected officials / edited by Cory Fleming, International City/County Management Association, ICMA.

"The GIS Guide for Elected Officials is a valuable resource for government officials who want to better understand how to use geographic information systems (GIS) to answer location-based questions. The use cases in GIS Guide for Elected Officials show the wide range of problems GIS can help solve, including determining potential markets for a start-up business, responding to the needs of a community during a disaster, and identifying urban food deserts. Designed to enable governments to learn from the experience of others, this volume also includes a review of what it takes to build and maintain a strong GIS program in light of rapidly changing technology and shrinking government budgets"--
