Recently GovLoop spoke with Bryan Jones, GIS Specialist at Gulf Coast Aerial Mapping about how the Postal Service is unlocking the meaning behind their data.
“Really what [GIS] has done for our organization is help people understand the meaning behind the data. When you use something like a map people are very interested in it, its easy to use, there is a recognition, and then to allow the data to come through the map leads them through the data without hitting them up front with a lot of numbers, columns, rows, and text they may not be able to understand. So it’s really helped people to understand the power behind data, and GIS has been a great solution for us,” Bryan Jones, GIS Specialist at Gulg Coast Aerial Mapping.
