Provide background for State geospatial programs Describe accomplishments, goals, challenges, cooperative programs, data development Collect links to standards, policy, and program documentation State score card rating the (9) NSGIC Coordination Criteria and key objectives of the Fifty States Initiative Ramona State Summary

22 1. A full-time, paid coordinator position is designated and has the authority to implement the state's business and strategic plans. 2. A clearly defined authority exists for statewide coordination of geospatial information technologies and data production. 3.
