Welcome to the Maine GeoLibrary
The mission of the GeoLibrary was set by legislature in state statutes; Title 5, Part 4, Chapter 163 2001 through 2006. The Board seeks to expand and promote the value of geographic spatial data through widespread distribution and innovative use for the benefit of Maine's citizens.
