NSGIC strives to be the premier state-led forum for developing, exchanging and endorsing geospatial technology and policy best practices. We share solutions to offer benefits across the geospatial ecosystem.

We facilitate connections between people and organizations across multiple sectors -- and the data and systems they use -- resulting in greater returns from the efficient use of geospatial technology.

We also pursue geospatial advocacy initiatives that coordinate activities, knowledge and policies of collaborative outreach to support informed decision-making.
