      Editorial Note: This electronic bimonthly communication represents the first-ever attempt at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) to organize news and information for our newly formed Geographic Information Systems (GIS) users group (GIS or Public Health users). Since the group was formed just two months ago with 27 staff, we now exceed 300 and represent many CDC and ATSDR programmatic interests. I want to welcome each of you. GIS is emerging as one of the most exciting developments in public health by providing new tools for surveillance, spatial statistical applications and analysis. GIS developments in public health are dynamic by all industry standards, even when compared with the older and more established GIS areas of geophysical sciences and urban and regional planning. Our purpose is to promote GIS understanding and development for our Public Health users through communication and connectivity e.g., networking. Hopefully, GIS News and Information will evolve into a timely and important avenue of communication and promote dialogue and exchange among our colleagues. Our real success with GIS will depend on how well we communicate with one another. Charles Croner, PhD, Editor First issue called Vol. 1, no. 1.
