Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
Geographic Information Systems use software tools to gather, transform, manipulate, analyze, and produce geospatial data related to the surface of the earth.
Through a general-fund appropriation, ITD provides the hosting infrastructure and a product coordinator for the North Dakota GIS Hub. Database administrators, web application developers, web presentation developers, and system administrators all contribute to provide a reliable, scalable, and secure environment. The GIS Hub itself is the result of many more people working together through a GIS Statewide Alliance.
- State agencies can use the IT Professional Services Contract Pool to obtain GIS services which include application development and data development services.
- Data Services
- The GIS Hub provides ArcGIS REST data services which can be consumed by desktop and browser applications. Additional information is available on the North Dakota GIS Hub Web Services web page.
- Mobile Resources
- Using the ArcGIS application on your tablet or smartphone provides you with the ability to create and configure maps that leverage content from the North Dakota GIS Hub. More information can be found on the Mobile web page.
- Visual ND
- This is the state's enterprise license of ArcGIS Online. More information can be found on the Visual ND web page.
ITD’s online Work Management System (WMS) may be used to submit a “Software Dev/GIS/PM/QA" Service Request.
