Hi J -
So sorry to delay our response to you. I just received this.
I am gathering the ESRI invoice for you and should have it soon. I think we pay for a yearly license.
We don’t have brochures or print materials featuring ESRI. Everything we do with the platform is digital for maximum transparency. We don’t have guidebooks or manuals, briefings, etc.
Here is where our ESRI data is gathered:
There is also a storymap about opioids at https://www.tempe.gov/government/human-services/care-7/addiction-resources
This is the extent of our ESRI use.
Dear J. Ader -
Here are the invoices regarding ESRI.
