GIS Display at the Indiana Statehouse

GIS Display at the Indiana Statehouse

The Indiana Geographic Information Council (IGIC) developed an interactive map of the state of Indiana called the IndianaMap. According to the IGIC website, "the IndianaMap includes the information people need most in a format that is accessible to both expert GIS users and the general public."

Starting today an exhibit about the project will be on display at the Indiana Statehouse. The exhibit featuring the IndianaMap serves to educate people on the use of the map and about GIS. The display "explains what GIS is, and shows how people in Indiana are using GIS to make our state a safer, healthier, and more profitable place to live." The IndianaMap display is located in the south atrium of the Statehouse from November 15-November 30.
