While this should come as no surprise to members of the Indiana GIS community, Indiana’s coordination success underscores the important role that we all have as members of the statewide GIS community!

Address Geocoding with State Composite Service  (November 2019)

​Geocoding is the process of transforming a description —such as a pair of coordinates, an address, or a name of a place—to a location on the earth's surface.  The state's composite service comes from a collaboration between county governments and the state. The data originates at the county and the state regularly harvests county data for integration into a single dataset.
