The Geographic Information Coordinating Council works simultaneously on numerous topics, issues and opportunities that are brought to the GICC through its committees, members, staff and the general public.
The GICC wants your your input on current, high profile issues!
NC OneMap Revitalization
is the data discovery and data access resource for North Carolina’s geospatial data. In 2010, the GICC and its standing committees initiated an effort to revitalize NC OneMap. In June 2011, the new NC OneMap Geospatial Portal
was launched to support the recently release 2010 imagery. The contents of the NC OneMap data download and web map services pages are now being migrated to the Geospatial Portal.
The Geospatial Portal makes it easy to discover and use geospatial data. As new resources are added, the Geospatial Portal will become the "one-stop shop" for users seeking geospatial information for North Carolina. Keyword searches and searches by spatial extent will make it easy to find the content you seek in your area-of-interest. Users can either download or stream data into a desktop or web application.
Update, March 2012!
Fast, easy data discovery with a map! In March 2012, the NC OneMap Data Explorer
was launched. The Data Explorer is a web-based application that enables users to search for, discover and view geospatial data. The search results are the same ones found in the Geospatial Portal but users may add map external services to the new online map.
More exciting changes to NC OneMap are on the horizon. Please submit your comments, questions and suggestions to Tim Johnson
Statewide Imagery Progam
In 2010, the NC 911 board funded the acquisition and delivery of high resolution orthoimagery for all 100 counties. The exciting outcome of this project is that consistent high resolution imagery is now available for the entire state for the first time ever. The data are now available through the NC OneMap Geospatial Portal.
The GICC’s Working Group for Orthophotography Planning recently released the North Carolina Orthoimagery Business Plan
to support the coordinated acquisition of a seamless statewide imagery dataset of standardized quality, resolution, age, and format. The NC 911 Board has agreed to fund the program for 2012-15. Based on the Business Plan, one fourth of the state will be acquired annually on a rotating basis.
The Eastern Piedmont Orthoimagery 2013 project is underway. Acquisition of imagery was completed by the contractors in March 2013. Visit the Eastern Piedmont Orthoimagery 2013
web page for details and status of the 2013 Eastern Piedmont project.
The Coastal Orthoimagery 2012 project is almost complete. Imagery were delivered to the PSAP and GIS Coordinators for the 25 counties in the Coastal region in Feburary 2013. The imagery will be released to NC OneMap for download and as an image service in May. Visit the Coastal Orthoimagery 2012
web page for details and status of the 2012 Coastal project.

Building A Statewide Street Centerline Database
The GICC’s Working Group for Roads and Transportation
is engaged in an ambitious effort to create a statewide street centerline database through agreements among local and state government agencies.
Please submit your comments, questions and suggestions to Alex Rickard

Building A Statewide Parcel Database
The GICC’s Working Group for Seamless Parcels
is engaged in an equally ambitious effort to create a statewide parcel database through agreements among local and state government agencies.
