Maryland Geo Share is the second of Maryland's ArcGIS Online Organizations. This resource is an online collection of data, maps, apps, tools, and geographic knowledge, built to maintain a strong relationship between Local, Regional, Universities and State GIS. It also offers access to groups committed to sharing data and information during emergencies and steady state to help Maryland be a more resilient, prepared, and responsive state.
MD Geo Share is a platform that not only allows local, regional and university GIS users to collaborate with the State and each other, but also allows the State to collaborate with the Federal Government Agencies.
An additional benefit is the ability for Emergency Managers and GIS users within Local Jurisdictions to host and maintain a suite of damage collection tools. The Damage Collection Web Map, Collector App, and Operation Dashboard are all available to jurisdictions willing to engage them with State support.
