Minnesota Governor's Council on Geographic Information

The Council's last meeting was June 24, 2009.  The Council's mission has been taken up by the Statewide Geospatial Advisory Council to the new Minnesota Geospatial Information Office (MnGeo).  Most Council committees will continue their work.  The Council webpages are being migrated to the new MnGeo website.

Geographic information is critical to the understanding and management of complex economic, social, and natural resources in Minnesota. The Minnesota Governor's Council on Geographic Information coordinated the development of geographic information technologies statewide between 1991 and 2009.
