ESRI’s Proposal to Update Recovery.gov

The Inland Empire’s Press Enterprise highlights ESRI’s response to a call to update Recovery.gov. The company suggested adding mapping and geospatial analysis to the site. This quote from local Rep. Darrell Issa highlights the possibilities of how “private sector” participation “would improve the site.”

Full transparency requires attention to not just what is posted online, but also how the information is posted. Information about how the taxpayers’ money is distributed must be disclosed in a structured, open and searchable format.

This is technology which can be implemented. There are a number of companies who can show they do it better than Recovery.gov.
