FirstMap and Beyond
FirstMap is the State's Enterprise GIS System that hosts over 1000 different datasets including business data, aerial photography and live data collected in the field. The Location Intelligence (LI) team supports FirstMap by applying regular software patches and upgrades, providing production support for technical issues, and ensuring datasets are kept current.
The LI team manages the governance and licensing of the Esri Enterprise License Agreement, and the ArcGIS Online organizations for the State, including supporting maps, applications, and other content created by over 800 users.
The Location Intelligence (LI) team provides training and consulting services as well as serves as subject matter experts. The LI team creates data sets, custom applications, and hub sites that do not relate directly to FirstMap.
