Emerging geoWeb tools give agencies new ways to put their data to use

This is a really interesting article, particularly for those who have GIS or data mixed in with their government information responsibilities.

With the geoWeb, however, the federal government has found itself with two major roles from the get-go. First, federal agencies are providing much of the data behind the geoWeb explosion. Second, government is finding the geoWeb to be an effective way to deliver information directly to citizens via its own Web applications.
