On behalf of the State GIS Board, the Arkansas GIS Office is pleased to announce the state’s strategic plan for GIS has been updated, and adopted. The plan builds on the work of the agency to foster the development, and maintenance of framework GIS data. It includes key actions on the work of the Division of Land Surveys that are necessary to be a leader in the archival and preservation of the public land survey system throughout the state. The plan recognizes the importance of local government stakeholders who feed some of the most important updates to state framework data.
The plan coincides, and supports work directed by Governor Asa Hutchinson for all state agencies to support his strategic goals of a more efficient state government. The plan was reviewed by Governor Hutchinson, and adopted by the State GIS Board on October 4th, 2017 at their meeting in Eureka Springs.
