  • About the Indiana Geographic Information Council. -- 2009 VERSION --
  • About IGIC The Indiana Geographic Information Council (IGIC) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to lead the effective application of geographic information in Indiana for an improved quality of life. IGIC is a nonprofit membership organization of GIS users, professionals and educators. Administered by an elected board of directors, IGIC is recognized as the official statewide coordinating body for Indiana geographic information.
  • Our membership includes individuals from all levels of government, private industry, educational institutions and other nonprofit groups. Through our membership and elected board of directors, we strive to make a real difference in Indiana GIS - both for those who use it and those who benefit from it. IGIC Directors’ represent over a dozen sectors. Please feel free to contact one of the Board members who represents your sector!
  • Morning session will be geared to Local Elected Officials
  • Through the Indiana Geographic Information Council (IGIC), a structure exists for effective statewide coordination – demonstrated by projects like the 2005 Statewide Orthophotography Project. IGIC brings together local, state, federal liaison, as well as with private sector and academia. Through cooperating organizations like the Indiana Geological Survey and IUPUI University Library, several GIS data sets are currently being made available to the public and researchers through the IndianaMap website and IndianaMap Data Library .
  • IGIC has responsibilities specifically defined in the IndianaMap law. To meet those responsibilities, IGIC has an IndianaMap committee with Framework Workgroups, a Data integration Workgroup, and the Board on Geographic Names. As framework workgroups organize, a consistent process is followed to assure proper planning. Building the framework requires thorough planning to assure the best possible outcome. The framework process includes identifying the current status and identifying gaps; business planning; and identifying funding and responsible data stewards for long-term maintenance. It can be a long process and requires much stakeholder involvement.
  • IGIC’s web site contains a wealth of information. From projects to policies, tools to news, nearly early everything IGIC does is posted on our web site.
  • From small community to statewide; data discovery, downloads, and on-line viewing; IGIC’s web site is the portal to geographic information in Indiana. Bookmark IGIC’s web site for your one-stop shop to community geographic information across the state.
  • We regularly pursue funding for and implement special projects that further the development of the IndianaMap. Here are this year’s projects (so far).
  • In January 2006, IGIC established a general membership. Membership helps support the organization. Members gain several benefits, including professional development and discounts on IGIC resources. IGIC has more than 300 general members and is growing strong!
  • The IndianaMap – an important part of what we do.
  • In 2002, IGIC defined its vision for the IndianaMap. Since that time, IGIC has taken the lead on making that vision a reality. With one base map for Indiana, we can save lives and save money. SAVING LIVES: When a high-quality base map is used by all, emergency responders can rely on consistent information. When an emergency happens, seconds matter and information is crucial. When a local Hazardous Materials Team provides mutual aid to a surrounding county they need to know where the emergency is, and may need to know things like where low-lying terrain is where heavy gases might flow, and whether there are homes in that area. These are all features of the base map. And when the Department of Education uses that same base map to map schools (example of leveraging other data), that emergency responder then has access to accurate information on places that may need evacuation. When it comes to protecting Hoosiers, a consistent source of geographic information should be available to all… local responders, state police, FEMA relief teams, non-governmental organizations like the Red Cross, and citizens. SAVING MONEY: When we create and maintain a high-quality, multi-use base map, Hoosier tax payers win. A multi-purpose GIS base map is an effective way to leverage the value of GIS across the state. When maintained strategically, bulk purchasing, streamlined management, and reduced duplication save real money. Multi-use requirements are met when data are developed in partnership with local, state, and federal government; university; private sector; surveyors; and regional planning organizations.
  • The IndianaMap is a portfolio of projects. It’s projects include framework data for a statewide base map; tools to access and use geographic information; and numerous educational opportunities to communicate the value of the IndianaMap, as well as policy, management and technical issues.
  • Sir Issac Newton, Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking Authoritative Source &amp; data: Local government Trusted source &amp; data: These publications are often compilations and subsets of the data from more than one authoritative source. It is “trusted” because there is an “official process” for compiling the data from authoritative sources and the accuracy, currency, and limitations of the data are known and documented. Examples: IDHS for Homeland Security; IOT for State Government; The IndianaMap (IGIC, IGS &amp; UITS) for public and business access.
  • These are the data layers associated with the base map – we call them “framework data.”
  • The ultimate value of the IndianaMap is a base map comes from its multi-purpose and broad availability. It is a consistent base map for multiple uses. The IndianaMap adheres to the principle “build once – use many times.” The more the IndianaMap is used, the more value it retains. To be multi-use, the IndianaMap must meet the needs of its most demanding users – typically local government. As users put other data on top of the base map, they will overlay correctly also. In this way, the base map is built once, and used many times for many purposes. Other data can be put “on top” of this base map and will fit together, resulting in better information for decision-makers.
  • Why would a “Data Steward” want to see their data on the IndianaMap? They don&apos;t, but they do want to see their neighboring counties data next to theirs to provide a seamless map layer. Because emergencies do not stop at jurisdictional boundaries.
  • IGIC provides links to other valuable GIS resources. For example, the Indiana Geological Survey is a wealthy resource for downloadable statewide GIS data. All IGS data can also be found via the IndianaMap Data Library.
  • New technologies are quickly changing the way GIS works. IGIC partners with educational and research institutions to stay abreast of leading-edge developments. In Indiana, framework data layers are being made accessible to GIS professionals through web-streaming technology called Web Map Services (WMS). The IndianaMap Map Services are intended for professional users for use in GIS applications. It is hosted by the Indiana Geological Survey. From the web site, you can view each of the map services Using GIS software that support WMS data streaming, users can add the web site address (the URL) for the service Users can then select the framework data service (with the prefix “FW”), and Start using the data within their own desk top GIS application. With WMS, GIS users can access current data directly from the source. Web Map Services are particularly beneficial for data sets that are very large (too big to put on a standard computer hard drive) and data sets that change often.
  • Education and Outreach continue to be at the core of our mission.
  • IGIC hosts an annual conference where over 300 professionals gather to share experiences, network, and learn the latest in the fast paced world of geographic information technologies. The annual conference is fun and informative. There are workshops, session presentations, keynote addresses, receptions, geocaching competitions, and more!
  • IGIC offers seminars and webinars throughout the year. Additionally, we organize regional road shows to take education and outreach opportunities in the field. IGIC’s website and calendar link to GIS courses provided by IGIC and external organizations. A full suite of presentations, from seminars and presentations given at the annual conference, are available for viewing on IGIC’s web site.
  • We regularly pursue funding for and implement special projects that further the development of the IndianaMap. Here are this year’s projects (so far).
  • The attributes associated with these layers will be discussed in the IDHS presentation. In case you need them: At a minimum, the service shall include: • Point address data (excluding personal information e.g., names and phone numbers) ‏ o Address Number o Street Name Prefix o Street Name o Street Name Suffix o Place Name (e.g., city, town, unincorporated area) ‏ o State Name (IN) ‏ o Zip Code • Parcel data (excluding personal information e.g., names, phone numbers) ‏ o GIS Parcel Number (State number) as defined in 50 IAC 23-20-4 o Parcel Number (County number) as defined in 50 IAC 23-20-4 • Local governmental unit boundary data o Boundary Type (municipality, precinct, fire, school, tax districts, etc.) ‏ o Boundary Name (name/identifier of municipality, precinct, fire, school, tax districts, etc.) ‏ • Street centerline data o Street name o Address maximum and minimum number ranges for left and right side of street, if available
