Innovate vs. Tradition ImageInnovation drives the evolution of GIS. The industry continues to rapidly transform and the GIO Office is committed to staying on top of the latest trends and technology in the industry. Aside from data, MD iMAP provides resources that allow GIS novices and developers alike to leverage the power of geospatial and location-based information. These resources can be used out-of-the-box, or accessed by developers for building applications.

Composite Locator
The Composite Locator is a geocoding resource used to identify features by matching descriptive information (address, place name or landmark name) with geospatial data. The Composite Locator is constructed using multiple authoritative sources and provides reliable match results.
