Tribal GIS

Check out the new book Tribal GIS available now on Esri:

Joseph Kerski, Education Manager for Esri, summarizes Tribal GIS: Supporting Native American Decision Making below:

"In Tribal GIS: Supporting Native American Decision Making, tribal leaders tell their stories about implementing and using geographic information systems (GIS) to address their unique challenges as sovereign Nations. This book covers applications in natural resources and the environment, transportation, cultural and historical preservation, economic development, health, education, public safety, and agriculture. Showing how tribal governments responsible for the stewardship of their land and resources and the health and well-being of their People use enterprise GIS to make decisions, Tribal GIS supports tribes new to GIS and those with GIS experience.
Folks: Be assured that we included several chapters on education in this book. I think you will find these, and the other 30 + stories in this book, inspiring."
