GIS for Obama

GIS for Obama

This job advertisment is interesting, not surprising for the most web savy candidate so far.

I wonder how much of what happens when this technology is applied to a presidential campaign will become public. If we hear very little, then you will know it has made a big impact !

    It’s not like some of us aren’t aware that the RNC is in fact a massive purchaser of GIS technologies, both visual and analytic, Ed.

    Good on that campaign for coming to a realization that such technologies could be put to use. The difference though, I would hope — is that it isn’t used to attempt to game districts in the manner in which the RNC has and continues to do. Just sayin’.

    @Daniel,

    Fair point, Gerrymandering using this technology would be a disappointing outcome, hardly and indication of change in Washington 🙂
