Analyzing the Availability of Broadband Access in Virginia
Authors: Rob Hudson
The Commonwealth of Virginia is addressing broadband access through an extensive mapping, modeling, and data visualization program. A key capability of this program is a web application that includes geoprocessing models, interface to run broadband availability scenarios, and 3D viewing capabilities. Users include local and regional government officials, broadband providers, and the public. The application was built using ArcGIS Server, Microsoft Silverlight, and the Balder open source project.
