Spatial Base for Maryland's Budgeting - 09/01/2012
The State of Maryland, USA, has acquired an Esri enterprise license agreement (ELA) that provides unlimited access to ArcGIS software to staff in its agencies. The state uses GIS for much of its work including transparency and accountability initiatives such as StateStat, GreenPrint and PlanMaryland.
Agencies that did not have GIS software can now spatially enable their data to make workflows more efficient and map complex issues for greater clarity. For example, the Department of Legislative Services hadn't previously used GIS but immediately secured licenses once the ELA was in place. Staff will use the software to map capital and operating budgets for legislators who can then spatially analyse impacts of budgetary decisions.
