Office of Geographic Information and Technical Services Division

PROVIDING ESSENTIAL GEOGRAPHIC DATA

The Office of Geographic Information and Technical Services houses the State Office of Geographic Information (OGI) and is responsible for maintaining the Oklahoma Conservation Commission’s geographic information systems (GI) operations and database. GI integrates many different types of geographic data to create maps and visualizations, which can in turn be used to analyze geographic trends and relationships. Many state agencies and industries, from transportation to telecommunications, rely on accurate, easily accessible GI data and maps to make informed decisions.

DEVELOPMENT OF OKLAHOMA’S GIS: OKMAPS

The coordination between the Conservation Commission and the state’s GIS services began in 1994 when the Oklahoma Legislature passed a bill that authorized the Commission to prepare a “strategy for developing a GIS for the state of Oklahoma.” To assist the Commission in this undertaking, the bill also allowed for the creation of the State GIS Council, which the Commission chairs to this day.

While the OGI has been tasked with many responsibilities, its primary mission was to develop a data catalog and clearinghouse. With the assistance of a federal grant from the Department of Homeland Security and partnerships with many local, state and federal organizations, OGI developed OKMAPS. As Oklahoma’s comprehensive GIS data clearinghouse, OKMAPS provides free access to the authoritative data the state needs to ensure daily operations that rely on GIS continue running smoothly. This data is publicly available and can be accessed through OKMAPS.
