The Georgia GISCC’s vision is that all levels of government become highly effective and efficient through the coordination and use of geospatially-related data, standards and technologies. The GISCC’s mission is to be a valued advisor on sustainable geospatial governance, investments, policies and data-driven decisions influencing Georgia.

The GISCC, formed by the Information Technology Policy Council (ITPC) in July of 1998, is the official statewide advisory and coordinating body for geospatially-related activities, pending legislative approval.

The Georgia legislature passed, and Governor Perdue signed, House Bill 169 sponsored by Senator Earl “Buddy” Carter (R-1st District).
