ESRI, has announced the second and final distribution of its homeland security grants. These grants are designed to foster and support the integration of GIS technology within government organizations throughout the United States.
“The timing is right for these grants,” says Christopher Thomas, ESRI state and local government industry manager. “Governments recognize that they must move quickly to ensure the safety of the communities they serve. The grant program is simply an extension of the work and educational efforts ESRI has engaged in since September 11, 2001.”
