Oregon Geospatial Enterprise Office


​​Geospatial Enterprise Office (GEO) coordination efforts focus on facilitating and promoting standards, reducing data collection duplication, and the promotion of GIS activities in Oregon. GEO both facilitates and collaborates with many committees and groups working toward these goals. ​​​​​

GIS councils and committees


Oregon Geographic Information Council ​
OGIC sets policy and strategic direction for geospatial activities in Oregon. OGIC has three standing committees identified in its Charter: the PAC, TAC, and FIT. 


OGIC Policy Advisory Committee​
The PAC provides policy support for OGIC. 

TAC provides the Oregon Geographic Information Council (OGIC) with technical advice related to GIS technology, GIS coordination, and geospatial data management, use, and governance​.


Framework Implementation Team
FIT develops standards and plans for data development and stewardship. FIT is composed of sixteen teams focusing on the most commonly needed data.
GIS Program Leaders​
GPL is a group of state agency GIS leaders who meet monthly to coordinate GIS activities and discuss GIS technologies at the enterprise.  

The workgroup will comprehensively study the current practices, issues, barriers, and concerns, and identify possible solutions to barriers, that prevent public bodies in Oregon from effectively and efficiently sharing geospatial Framework data with one another and on a statewide basis. ​

Task force on surveying / GIS / mapping​​ (inactive)

The committee examines the relationships between land surveying, cartography, photogrammetry, and geographic information systems, in providing information to the public. ​
