Bridging the digital divide in OHIO with GIS
Using geographic information system (GIS) technology, RCG has helped Ohio increase insight into its community broadband needs and develop a comprehensive broadband strategy.
Access to reliable and high-speed internet is essential for businesses and households in our modern world. The State of Ohio and its leadership understand this and are taking steps to help bridge and close the digital divide. But what sets Ohio apart is that its leaders understand that these efforts must start with authoritative data and an accurate picture of broadband access across the state.
Platte River Analytics, a bronze Esri partner, and Reid Consulting Group teamed up to derive coverage ratings for all of Ohio, combining internet speeds, demographics, and GIS spatial analyses.
