Briefs: Intel to help govts manage land use

Feb 07, 2006

A software package will allow city governments to improve land management and community development, Intel said Monday.

The land-management starter kit was developed by members of the Digital Communities Initiative, a collection of technology companies including the chip maker that are working together to allow local governments to improve economic vitality and standards of living in their communities.

The initiative will host a number of seminars nationwide to teach government employees how to make the best use of the software.
