In 2009-2010, AppGeo worked with the State of Arkansas to develop a comprehensive GIS strategic plan for the development and maintenance of statewide framework data.

The project was funded through the Cooperative Assistance Program (CAP) administered by the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC), which funds projects that support the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) and the objectives of the Fifty States Initiative Action Plan.  The project used the GIS Strategic and Business Planning Templates and Process Guidelines developed by AppGeo in 2006 (updated in 2009) for the National States Geographic Information Council (NSGIC) on behalf of the FGDC.
