The Business Plan for Maryland Statewide Parcel Data Development & Maintenance was written by the Maryland Department of Planning (MDP) in fulfillment. The plan recognizes that the objective of the NSDI CAP grant program is to fund innovative projects in the geospatial community in order to build the State and national infrastructure necessary to enable governments, private and non-profit organizations, educational institutions and individuals to effectively identify, improve, access, share, manage and use digital geospatial data.
The Business Plan for Maryland focuses on the activities necessary to support the creation, expansion and widespread distribution of statewide parcel data throughout Maryland. Although this plan summarizes future business planning activities and objectives, it also discusses the many parcel-related tasks undertaken to improve the evolution of Maryland’s geospatial capacity that have already been completed. These completed tasks were made possible by the receipt of this grant. This grant has provided the impetus needed to further advance the State planning process by enabling MDP to perform additional background research and to document ongoing parcel integration project status, goals and activities.
