Authors: Everytt Begay
An overview on how Navajo Nation is using ArcGIS to provide critical data to our local governments on the reservation. The GIS data is crucial to implement their Land Use Plans which is one of the Public Policies they develop. Currently the Navajo Nation is in the process of reorganization of their Local Governments. They are regionalizing 110 chapter organizations across Navajo land into 24 Districts to reduce cost. ArcGIS is also crucial in our efforts to protect our Natural Resources.
