Office of Geographic Information and Technical Services
The Office of Geographic Information and Technical Services division's responsibilities include housing the State Office of Geographic Information and the State GIS Coordinator as well as maintaining Oklahoma Conservation Commission's geographic information systems (GIS) operations and database. The division also coordinates computer network support for the agency and for conservation districts.
In 1994 the Oklahoma Legislature passed and the Governor signed a bill that authorized the Oklahoma Conservation Commission to prepare a "Strategy for Developing a GIS for the State of Oklahoma" and created the State GIS Council to assist the Conservation Commission in this project. The Conservation Commission serves as the chair of the State GIS Council. For more information on the State GIS Council, visit their web site at http://www.okmaps.onenet.net.
