The Strategic Plan in 2012 identified several key needs and goals for a statewide geospatial/GIS program. The following working groups are currently active in supporting these goals.
The NebraskaMAP working group is about data sharing – "Build it once, share it many." Currently, NebraskaMAP serves as a metadata clearinghouse and provides access to over 240 data layers for Nebraska. Planning and implementation efforts are underway to enhance NebraskaMAP into a multi-use enterprise platform. This will further help users gain access to authoritative and peer-reviewed NESDI data, maps, and GIS web services. This working group also provides data sharing guidelines and standards.
Facilitates the acquisition, maintenance, and sharing of a statewide elevation dataset by developing standards and specifications for LiDAR point clouds and derivative products. Develops alternatives for systematic and cost-effective acquisition of these products, and defining a program of stewardship for managing and publishing the data.
Establishing a statewide plan for digitizing and acquisition standards and guidelines, data sharing, and statewide coverage for various levels of imagery products and services.
Enabling the integration of different local government land records information into a statewide dataset. Developing guidelines for a common geodatabase model that can provide public data for use in a multitude of state government applications.
Developing and maintaining a statewide seamless street centerline and address referencing system used for various transportation, public safety, economic development, Next Generation 911 and other related applications.
Establish standards and guidelines to improve authoritative statewide boundary datasets derived from governmental, administrative, statistical and other type boundaries across Nebraska.
