Geospatial information refers to any digital data containing location-based information, which is at the core of nearly all government functions. Local, regional, and state government in Georgia use geospatial information to support nearly all the services they provide citizens, including keeping track of property boundaries, road management, public works, environmental management, and much, much more. The State’s Geospatial Information Office (Office), housed within the Department of Community Affairs, is charged with securing and improving access to the most current statewide geospatial data and facilitating its development through cross-jurisdictional coordination – eliminating duplicative efforts and decreasing acquisition and creation costs.

The Office’s coordinated approach to data development enables multi-jurisdictional interoperability – helping cities, counties, and regions work with each other and with state and federal agencies – to improve the quality of services provided to the State’s citizens, to drive economic development and to respond to natural disasters. In doing so, the Geospatial Information Office plays a key role in promoting the safety and economic vibrancy of all Georgia communities, while maximizing taxpayer value by leveraging the wise use of technology.

Our passion for improving quality of life through the integrated use of high-quality, spatially-enabled data in decision-making is at the heart of everything we do. Geospatial sciences and technologies inspire and enable every level of government to save money, lives, and our environment through a deeper understanding of the changing world around us.
