Center for Geographic Information & Analysis (CGIA) CGIA - North Carolina Center for Geographic Information and Analysis News Selected from over 300,000 eligible candidates, CGIA recently received a Special Achievement in GIS (SAG) Award by Esri for the development of the next generation of NC OneMap. The SAG awards are presented each year by Esri to organizations from around the world to show appreciation for their use of Esri technology. More details... Resources NCOneMap Find geospatial data, services, and maps that you can count on to be authoritative, current, and well documented. Standards & Best Practices Standards and Best Practices for working with GIS data Videos Watch over 400 presentations from the NC GIS Conference Services GIS Services CGIA brings breadth and depth of experience to a range of projects involving GIS. We help clients define and articulate business requirements and create effective solutions that meet those needs to support informed decisions. Data Integration Having data fully integrated into a single, standardized data set allows the true power of GIS to be unleashed. However, integrating data can be difficult and time consuming. Our demonstrated experience, with projects such as NC Parcels and AddressNC, highlights our unique capabilities to assemble data to ensure project success. Application Development & Data Visualization Analyzing data and communicating the results effectively can sometimes be a challenge. Our technical staff understands those challenges and has the skills necessary to customize a solution to suit your needs. Project Management Successful projects rely on more than good luck. Our project managers ensure success by identifying key tasks, addressing risks, and facilitating communication among project partners, clients, and technical staff. Coordination As staff to the NC Geographic Information Coordinating Council (GICC), many of our activities directly support the Council's overall mission of promoting the use of GIS technology through the establishment of standards, best practices, and policies in a collaborative environment within the GIS community. Here are some of the ways our coordination efforts help increase the value of GIS technology in the state: Serve as staff to the GICC Bring issues to the GICC, working with committees, and implementing directives Directly manage priorities identified by the GICC including NC OneMap, NC Parcels, AddressNC, and Statewide Orthoimagery Advance initiatives that create, access, and apply geographic data and technology Collaborate with stakeholders and facilitate the development of standards and best practices for the geospatial community Engage the GIS community by organizing the biennial North Carolina GIS Conference About Us For over forty years, our mission has been to advance the use of geographic information systems (GIS) technology as a tool for better decision-making in North Carolina. We accomplish this by coordinating statewide geospatial initiatives through the NC Geographic Information Coordinating Council (NC GICC) resulting in cost-effective ways to create, access, and apply geographic data and technology. We also provide professional services that develop spatial solutions to meet customers’ business needs. All of our work culminates in providing assurances that current, reliable, and high-quality data are available using tools that are easily accessible to decision-makers.
