GIS is certainly a powerful tool.

Glad to hear this technology is being used to its fullest extent.

I had a tour of the Detroit Police Department two years ago and spent most of my time in their GIS lab. They tracked the amount, types, and frequencies of crimes. No more push pins and thumb tacks for them!

Well that would be easy for Detroit... just make the whole city one big crime zone. j/k ;)

Sorry Bub - You have to pee in a cup before you can defend democracy with nifty GIS software. The last Spicoli they let in labeled the Chinese Embassy - "House of Slobodan Milosevic." And we all know how that turned out. ;)

Okay, ha ha, I know you are joking. But let's not write off Detroit that easily. It just got moved down a notch, from #1 to #2, as one of the most dangerous cities in the U. S.

Who's the new #1?
