Award Number 07HQAG0035, Category 3: Fifty States Initiative
Strategic and Business Plan Development in Support of the NSDI Future Directions Fifty States Initiative: Property Boundary Data – Capture and Integration Framework
Maine used the CAP opportunity to update the state's GIS strategic plan and align it with the Fifty States Initiative. Their vendor, James W. Sewall Company, conducted extensive outreach with the state GIS stakeholders and the Maine GeoLibrary to draft a plan. A secondary project was to draft a specification for an integrated land records information system (ILRIS) that will hold the Sate of Maine property data at the parcel level. Both goals were achieved and are being used to guide the future GIS activities in Maine.
