GovLoop recently spoke with Peter Noy, Asset Manager, Geospatial Management Office, US, Coast Guard, on how GIS is improving business functions with limited resources.
“We are now beginning to take terabytes of information and display in a geospatial way, in the past we have had to look at tons of tabular reports and documents, we can now look at it on a map. That gives the decision makers from the Admiral all the way down to the guys on the field the knowledge of where the activities are, where the facilities are and where need concentrate the resources that we have because budget constrains are small, we can do better with what we have.”
