Mapping technology is central to effective elections. From redistricting to campaigning to election day itself, GIS powers the operations that drive this essential democratic process.

Today, GIS goes far beyond election logistics to enable productive collaboration via informative, interactive maps. It’s easier than ever to leverage your existing GIS resources to create easy-to-use applications that give officials, candidates, citizens, and the media a powerful new platform on which to visualize and discuss the electoral process.

GIS provides easy applications that give officials, candidates, citizens, and the media powerful tools to visualize, interact and plan the electoral process. Easy access to poll information at any one time involving participation of all stake holders leads to higher voter turnout and confidence in the elections results. GIS integrates geospatial services in the cloud, realtime data, user generated content, mobile applications, and social networks to avail the information promoting open election practices that leaders and citizens expect.
