Michigan Taps ESRI For Digital Imaging


Michigan’s Department of Technology, Management and Budget (DTMB) has chosen Esri to host and manage all imagery data for the state.

The Esri solution will serve up to 25 terabytes of data for the Center for Shared Solutions (CSS), an office within DTMB, that manages services and products that are common to all areas of the government. The deal will bring Michigan’s geospatial data into the Esri cloud.

One of the key functional areas of CSS includes providing leadership, technical expertise and sharing of geographic information in the State. The department provides more than 60 statewide mapping datasets built on the ArcGIS platform for every state-run entity in Michigan.

Common uses for this type of imaging platform include parceling, zoning, land use, law enforcement, environmental studies and agriculture. Esri allows for sharing geospatial data across agencies and within statewide and nationwide networks. Users can make edits to their own maps and permission them for collaboration as needed.
