GIS Data

I recently had a great conversation with Bill Finn of Finn Digital about the Data Initiative, and he brought up some interesting examples that I thought I would share. While not the same type of data initiative we are doing here in Milwaukee, these are good examples of how the Milwaukee Data Initiative can benefit the city as a whole (business, government, service providers).
