Through a general-fund appropriation, the North Dakota GIS Technical Committee and the Information Technology Department operate the GIS Hub, an infrastructure comprised of geospatial data storage, data services, and application interfaces. The GIS Hub supports state agencies in the development of their GIS and the dissemination of common interest data to other levels of government and the public.

North Dakota's GIS program includes a rich history of state agencies working together. Through a collaborative effort, ownership and stewardship of data has been defined, and a conduit for communication and data to other agencies and organizations has been created.
