The North Dakota Information Technology Department and the North Dakota State Geospatial Committee (SGC) operate the GIS Hub, an infrastructure comprised of geospatial data storage, data services, and application interfaces. The GIS Hub supports state agencies in the development of their GIS and the dissemination of common interest data to other levels of government and the public.

Mission Statement

The State of North Dakota's GIS Hub will provide the essential infrastructure to share core geographic datasets through an accessible data warehouse among stakeholders with browsing ability to the general public. The Hub will leverage the State's existing data, infrastructure and expertise to manage the core elements of this enterprise solution.

Vision Statement

It is the vision of the SGC that the Geospatial Program will continue to grow in value to state agencies and other levels of government which in turn increases the level of service and cost effectiveness to the citizens of the North Dakota. The core of the Geospatial Program is the GIS Hub which will continue to develop through a focus on improved and new data sets and secondarily, through improved and new functionality and applications.
