When the U.S. Navy decided to reduce its energy costs and become more environmentally friendly, it developed the Navy Shore Geospatial Energy Program. The system uses GIS software to track energy consumption on a global scale and at individual facilities. "Geospatial capabilities are changing the way that we all do business," said Sandrine Schultz, energy program manager at Naval Facilities Engineering Command. "We turned data into decisions."
