Framework Data Development Sustainable Funding Plan

The purpose of this project was to develop a strategic business plan for the development and maintenance of statewide framework GIS data in Arkansas.  The project involved stakeholder input from all corners of the state.  The final deliverable is a written business plan to assist the Arkansas Geographic Information Systems Board (AGISB) and the Arkansas Geographic Information Office (AGIO) in meeting its legislative mandate to develop a coordinated GIS for the State.  The plan was formally adopted by the AGISB on March 3, 2010.  The plan is the playbook Arkansas’ GIS community intends to use over the next five years.
