"About 80% of the data [collected] in the world is related to some place on the earth's surface," says Jim Gillispie, head of the Government Publications/Maps/Law Library (GPML). Jim talks with Andrea Bartelstein about ArcGIS, mapping software that enables users to analyze geospatial data and create their own custom designed maps. "Maps are not about answering your questions, but [...] giving you all the details for you to ask more questions of the map. …What's kind of neat is you get to choose what components you want to bring to the map."
