Geographic Information Systems Enterprise Architecture
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 state agencies and stakeholders 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. The GIS Enterprise Architect develops and maintains an enterprise and statewide vision for GIS Coordination initiatives. The scope of this coordination includes the development of enterprise infrastructure and shared services, such as streamlined access to authoritative map layers, but also seeks to engage our stakeholder community as a critical element in evaluating the long term strategy for our geospatial program goals.
