In 2009-2010, AppGeo helped Delaware complete a statewide geospatial planning process involving stakeholders from across the state. The principal strategic goal identified was to establish a state government GIS office. AppGeo then worked with the state to develop a business plan to compile and present important recommendations and information that would enable decision-makers to move forward toward this goal.
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.
