A key goal of local government is to provide quality service to its citizens in the most cost-efficient manner possible. There are many things government can do to accomplish a noble goal such as this, and one is in the area of geospatial data and technologies. Local Governments deal with complex layers of information, most of which includes the variable of “location” at its core.
