Examining a dozen of the most innovative ways that CIS web services are being disseminated to and drawn from around the world, this book encompasses national mapping service delivery in New Zealand, digital map creation for on-the-run journalists in the United States, and location-based services in Scandinavia. This is a guide for forward-thinking managers in any enterprise who are interested in fully leveraging the power of spatial data and information. Discussed is how increasing integration of GIS into the decision-making processes of government, administrative, academic, and commercial organizations highlights the importance of ensuring that everyone is working from the same consistent data sets.
