ArcGIS Software Empowers Agencies to Deliver Transparency and Accountability
January 4, 2012
Redlands, California—The State of Maryland has acquired an Esri enterprise license agreement (ELA) that provides unlimited access to ArcGIS software to staff in its agencies. Under Governor Martin O’Malley’s leadership, the state uses GIS for much of its work including groundbreaking transparency and accountability initiatives such as StateStat, GreenPrint, and PlanMaryland. Now, access to the software will extend to all corners of state government.
“The drive for this came down from the top,” said Kenny Miller, deputy geographic information officer, State of Maryland. “Governor O’Malley is such a tremendous supporter of using GIS technology to improve decision making and transparency that he wanted all the agencies to have access so they can adopt GIS in their business missions.”
