A jogger runs through a park, notices a broken bench, and reports the location with pinpoint accuracy using a smartphone. The community of the future is upon us with new technology that merges GIS mapping, mobile, and social media applications. If you are ready to learn how to apply new technologies to the challenges of citizen engagement, check out our upcoming webconference on Wed., June 27 from 1-2:30 pm ET.
"Citizen Engagement Goes High-Tech" will provide technology solutions that build on what you're probably already doing - building map data, performing analyses, and eliminating operational inefficiencies - and apply them to improving citizen engagement in your community. This webconference is presented by Christopher Thomas, director of government markets at Esri. Thomas is author of Measuring Up: The Business Case for GIS; Mapping for Congress; Standards for Success; and GIS for Decision Support and Public Policy Making.
Don't let the speed of technological advances stop you from taking the first steps. Join us for this informative webconference to learn how your organization can operate more effectively by taking advantage of available technologies that put citizen engagement on the map. Literally.
