USDA gets better data
The Agriculture Department and some of its customers are using a new data system that offers increased accuracy of geodatabase development and geocoding services for graphic information system (GIS) analysis and reporting.
Tele Atlas North America Inc., a Menlo Park, Calif., company that provides digital map data and location content tied to U.S. road networks, has partnered with DLT Solutions Inc. in Herndon, Va., on the Agriculture project.
The agreement lets specific Agriculture agencies and selected customers use the data for their GIS analysis and reporting. The license lets Agriculture expand data use to its other groups
