The North Carolina Center for Geographic Information and Analysis (CGIA) is the lead agency for geographic information systems (GIS) services and GIS coordination for the State of North Carolina. When the CGIA began the GeoMAPP project, it was organizationally aligned with the state Department of Environment and Natural Resources, but in late 2009 the CGIA transitioned to the Office of Information Technology Services. CGIA provides GIS services to state and local governments as well as the private sector.
The mission of CGIA's Coordination Program is to facilitate and advance statewide (intergovernmental) geospatial coordination initiatives that result in cost-effective ways to create, access, and apply geographic data and technology. Results include assurances that reliable and high-quality data are current, and that tools are in place for decision makers to access these data resources.
