Strategic Plan Update

The Maine GeoLibrary Strategic Plan that is the guide for strategic work performed on behalf of the Maine Library of Geographic Information was last updated in 2009. In July of 2021, the GeoLibrary Board launched a project to develop an updated strategic plan that will provide a future looking blueprint for financing Board operations, data acquisition and hosting, and dissemination of geospatial data to the greater GIS community and the citizens of Maine. This plan will form the basis for completing and maintaining the Board’s OneMAP for ME program and other strategic efforts to build or provide access to core geospatial infrastructure shared to the GIS community.

On September 15, 2021 the Board launched an outreach campaign to gather input about current and future needs of our stakeholder community. The first phase of this outreach effort is an online survey that you can access using the link provided below. The survey will be open until October 1, 2021. We need your help to succeed in this mission! Please take a few moments to contribute your thoughts and ideas about the GeoLibrary catalog and services.

Did you know? The Mission of the GeoLibrary was set by the 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.
