Georgia launched its Geospatial Information Office in 2015 in an effort to focus GIS assets across the state and with local government partners. With projects like next-generation 911 relying on solid base layer data, state Geospatial Information Officer Susan Miller said several high-profile initiatives are riding on the successful bridging of long-standing silos.

At the Georgia Digital Government Summit last week, Miller described her role and discussed how GIS is helping bridge the gap between disparate agencies.
