A Geographic Information System (GIS) is an
information technology approach to the capture, storage, analysis, management, and
presentation of data with reference to geographic location.
While many agencies have a long history of
using GIS in Wyoming, the tremendous demand for and utilization of geospatial technologies
has out-paced historic statewide coordination efforts. Working with the GIS Oversight
Committee, the GIS Technical Advisory Group, and the existing GIS user community,
the Office of the CIO is in the process of developing the enterprise vision for
GIS Coordination within the State of Wyoming. The cooperative design and implementation
of enterprise GIS resources will more efficiently utilize tax dollars by reducing
redundancy and increasing collaboration between agencies.
