Geographic Information Systems
- U.S.-Mexico Cross-Border Planning and Colonias Monitoring
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) collaborated with the U.S. Department of Interior, Geological Survey (USGS) and Mexican partners to create a binational Internet-based Geographic Information System (GIS) applications for four sister cities along the US/Mexico Border. These include El Paso/Ciudad Juarez, Eagle Pass/Piedras Negras, Douglas/Agua Prieta, and Ambos Nogales. For each of the urban areas, the web mapping applications provide statistical and spatial analysis tools to plan for future growth scenarios, estimate infrastructure development costs for the colonias, and supply binational demographic census data for economic growth models.
A collaboration between HUD-USGS and Mexico to support Ex-President Bush's Partnership for Prosperity Initiative and the U.S.-Mexico Binational Commission.
