Cancellation of GIS Day

It is with deepest regret we cancelling this year’s GIS Day at the State. As with many other conferences, the safety of attendees, partners and staff always comes first.
 

GIS Town Hall Meetings

As an alternative, the GIO will be hosting a number of virtual "Town Hall Meetings" on proposed topics including:

  • Indiana Imagery Program
  • Data Sharing
  • Indiana GIS Data Standards

Watch your email for information on these meetings. Again, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to greeting you at GIS Day, next year.

Want to learn more about GIS?

Geographic information systems (GIS) have become an integral tool in state agencies and local governments where they are used to support decisionmaking in the public interest.

Explore the innovative ways GIS is used to improve government operations. GIS has the unique capability to help explain large amounts of information via maps and graphics usinglocation information. Cross agency applications appear seamless when data is merged into a GIS. See the many new avenues for using this increasingly important technology.

GIS is used at the state to:

Issue permits
Plan transportation projects
Share information with the public
Study flooding
Prepare for and respond to emergencies
Understand environmental issues
Study water quality
Track health issues
Inventory assets
Understand public needs
Plan new programs
Promote economic development
