GIS for Government: Addressing the Challenges of Funding and Interoperability

Across county, state, and federal governments, Geospatial Information Systems are used in nearly every agency and department. As such the acquisition and application of GIS in government is an ever-growing and ongoing initiative. Currently, with high drive and desire to standardize systems and improve interoperability, the market for GIS is rapidly expanding.

IDGA’s GIS for Government Summit will delve into the evolving nature of Geospatial Information Systems, and the current direction it is heading across all departments and agencies. In doing so, it will address, in depth, the funding for development/acquisition of GIS in state and federal departments, compatibility and interoperability of systems across applications, standardization of GIS and built in tools across platforms. It will also unpack current Geospatial Information Systems capabilities, as well as current programs and initiatives.
