Mapping Locates Foster Parents

An interesting story about the use of GIS for a typical human/cultural geography problem… placing foster kids with parents. Govtech provides this great read… “MST has a built-in interface with Microsoft’s Excel database software, “So if we have addresses [in Excel] for all the children abused and neglected, we can migrate all of those names and map them almost instantly in Streets and Trips… The system also generates maps indicating the distances between removals and placements of foster kids throughout the state. To do this, it relies on an in-house GIS along with other technologies.” See Mapping Software Helps Washington State Find Foster Parents
