About Us

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have been employed since the 1980's in Maine State Government to support effective decision making and efficient service delivery. The GIS Executive Committee (GIS EC) was chartered by the Information Services Policy Board in 1996 to coordinate spatial services across State agencies and to negotiate and administer service level agreements (SLAs) between agencies and the Maine Office of Geographic Information Systems (MEGIS).

As a result of the recent reorganization and consolidation of the state's information technology services, the GIS Stakeholders Group now coordinates geospatial activities within Maine state government and advises MEGIS on the needs of state agencies as they relate to geospatial information technology.

In 2005 the Legislature established the Maine Library of Geographic Information to, in part, operate a coordinated, cost-effective electronic gateway to provide public access to State and non-state spatial data.
