Pages 40

In this final section, we will take you through a number of examples of specific policy relevant data and circumstances using a variety of data, from law enforcement and criminal justice, to public health and disaster relief, to education and substance abuse. All of these are areas which local communities, regional authorities, national governments, and world bodies like the World Health Organization are faced with each and every day; you will see how a greater use of the power of GIS will enhance the ability of these groups and leaders to make better decisions for all concerned.
