The lowdown on mapping software

What is it? Mapping software that resides on a server, desktop or mobile device.

What are the advantages? It connects data with the real world, giving employees the data they need for field activities.

Who needs it? Anyone who needs to know what is where, including security personnel, land use planners, military, emergency services, demographers and resource managers.

Must-know information? Verify that any software will interact with existing applications and databases. While standards exist, not all GIS software is compliant and you don't want to waste money on an expensive and unnecessary integration project.
