Our mission is to provide leadership and coordination for the creation and maintenance of statewide base geospatial data (Framework) and overall support to the GIS community. We facilitate the use, development, access, sharing, and management of geospatial data and assist with communicating the value of geospatial information to citizens and decision-makers in the state of Idaho.
Our primary initiative is The Idaho Map (TIM), which is designed to improve statewide coordination, leverage existing geospatial investments, and provide reliable access to geographic data and services.
Our State GIS Strategic Plan was revised and approved by the Idaho Technology Authority (ITA) on December 6, 2016. Major components of The Idaho Map are:
- Framework (base map) data.
- Technical infrastructure distributed on a federated model.
- Network of people and organizations.
- Universal applications.
