Expanding Data-Driven Decisions with GIS
This proposal increases funding and capacity for Minnesota’s Geospatial Information Office (MnGeo) to enhance the state’s ability to lead collaborative geographic data collection and management work in partnership with local governments, federal agencies, and non-governmental partners.
80% of all data is estimated to have a spatial component – ensuring that data is as current and accurate as possible, enables Minnesota’s policymakers to make the most impactful and supportive decisions possible. Increasing MnGeo’s capacity to lead collaborative data collection will organizations across Minnesota reduce flood risk, manage land, protect our waters, target renewable energy implementation, and much more.
