OGIS consults with other state agencies to help them integrate GIS technology into their agency operations. GIS technology not only enhances an agency's decision-making abilities, but also helps it deliver services to the public more efficiently and effectively. The following applications were cooperatively developed:
Site Evaluator (for business)
Tax List Search
NJ Information Warehouse
OGIS coordinates a number of GIS teams, committees, and user groups, the largest of which is:
New Jersey Geospatial Forum
The New Jersey Geospatial Forum represents the various constituencies of the State's GIS Community.
Initiated by the New Jersey Office of Information Technology, Office of GIS, the New Jersey Geospatial Forum is designed to:
- Stimulate and encourage the advancement of an interdisciplinary, professional approach to the planning, design, operation, and use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and related technology to meet the needs of public and private information providers, stewards, and users in New Jersey;
- Provide a forum for communication and coordination among the various professional discipline who comprise the membership of the forum;
- Bridge the gap between information producers, stewards, and users;
- Promote professional and educational development of the membership by providing opportunities for the exchange of knowledge and information;
- Provide a conduit through which the membership can reach consensus on GIS policies and standards as they relate to New Jersey's spatial data infrastructure;
- Provide a mechanism through which the interests and concerns of New Jersey's GIS community can be directed to appropriate policy makers.
An Executive Committee governs the New Jersey Geospatial Forum. The Executive Committee consists of ten members who represent federal, state, county, and municipal government, the private sector, regional authorities or metropolitan planning organizations, licensed Professional Land Surveyors, GIS non-government organizations, and higher education and K-12 institutions in New Jersey.
Both New Jersey Geospatial Forum meetings and Executive Committee meetings are open to the public. Information on upcoming meetings is posted on the NJ Geospatial Forum Site.
