State agencies involved with geographic information systems (GIS) began meeting in July 1992. In January 1993, the Maryland State Government Geographic Information Coordinating Committee was organized formally by the Governor. Participants include users and managers of geographic information systems from the Department of the Environment; the Department of Housing and Community Development; the Department of Natural Resources; the State Highway Administration of the Department of Transportation; the Office of Planning; and the State Archives.
Through the Committee, State agencies address issues related to geographic information systems. The Committee seeks to reduce costly duplication of data collection, transfer and systems implementation. It also supports data-set development; creates guidelines for use, exchange, and preservation of spatial data; and coordinates State efforts with federal agencies and private organizations.
