Note: In early 2014, a new law was established which combined the efforts of the MD iMAP Executive Committee with the Open Data Workgroup to form the Council on Open Data. More information on the Council on Open Data can be found on their website.
Governor O'Malley signed a Revised Executive Order on March 13, 2012, which reinvigorated and refined the MD iMAP program and incorporated non-state members into this committee for the first time. The Original Executive Order, signed in December 2009, first defined the program, the Maryland Integrated Map or MD iMAP.
The new order promoted open and transparent government "by making geospatial data created by the public sector available to the public to the fullest extent possible consistent with privacy and security." It ambitiously and correctly notes that "MD iMAP is an enterprise statewide mapping system."
For the first time, the order instructed the GIO to "[d]evelop, maintain, and operate an enterprise geospatial system, including the cental store and catalog of MD iMAP data and services available to agencies and the public." Finally, this committee was tasked with providing the Governor with "a budget that describes the collective cost of operating and investing in MD iMAP"
Executive Committee Meetings ArchiveThe Executive Committee met approximately 4 times a year to discuss the progress of MD iMAP and explore solutions to future initiatives and funding considerations. Minutes are available for each meeting, along with presentations given during each meeting.
