The NSGIC 2021 Geospatial Maturity Assessment (GMA) Dashboard

In addition to the 2021 GMA report, the state report cards, and each state’s response, NSGIC has also published the results in an interactive geospatial web map application with dashboards that have been customized for each theme. The dashboards allow users to take a deeper dive into the results, interacting with individual state and collective national results bringing to life the visual patterns and trends in the data.

To assist individuals in their successful use of the NSGIC 2021 Geospatial Maturity Assessment (GMA) Dashboard, a help tutorial has been created to show how to navigate and use the interactive geospatial web map application. Click here to access and review the help tutorial.

NSGIC Best Practices for State Geospatial Maturity

Growing from the Geospatial Maturity Assessment, the NSGIC best practices series compiles best practices collected from “honor roll” states based on individual GMA report cards. In 2020, NSGIC released best practices for coordination, addresses, NG9-1-1, and transportation. To support our community in the future, using the latest GMA data, NSGIC will release best practices for cadastre, hydrography, elevation, and orthoimagery.
