Many government agencies are turning to GIS to map, track and understand the scope of the opioid epidemic in local communities.

It’s clear why government needs a new approach. Today, an average of 100 Americans die each day from opioid overdoses.


Understanding the geography of the crisis in real time is critical to effectively deploying resources and quelling the escalation of problems. To learn more about the crisis, GovLoop partnered with Esri for this report about using GIS to tackle the opioid epidemic. This report was informed by interviews with state and local government leaders, as well as conversations with thought leaders from Esri.
