The Office of Geospatial Information (OGI) was formed in January 2011 to improve support and facilitate the sharing of resources and knowledge. OGI coordinates and supports Geographic Information Technology (GIT) for the State of Missouri, covering all technologies and standards relating to the development of the state’s geospatial infrastructure, data and metadata. This includes technologies such as Geographic Information Systems, Global Positioning Systems and Remote Sensing.
The mission of the OGI Office is to coordinate and support geospatial technologies for the State of Missouri so it can efficiently serve the public’s spatial data needs. The OGI is housed within the Office of Administration, Information Technology Services Division, and reports to the State Chief Information Officer (CIO).
