The 2019 Geospatial Maturity Index Survey is now closed. We are currently collecting and analyzing the results to be announced in November.

The GMI serves to audit existing GIS programs with real-time accurate and comprehensive comparative data for public sector organizations to compare themselves against their peer groups and track their progress over time based on specific core competencies.

The GMI Survey

The survey consists of four sections: Organization Information, Readiness, Implementation, and Impact. Respondents can complete the survey within SurveyMonkey at their own pace, with the application saving the latest entries into the survey as long as the survey is completed from the same IP address.

We encourage respondents to work collaboratively across relevant departments to complete the survey, facilitating the development of a corporate-wide view of your GIS program. All survey participants will receive their individual GMI score comparing themselves to the national average. Respondents’ survey answers will not be shared with any third parties.

Respondents will also have the opportunity to purchase a tailored State of Maturity Report for their geospatial program. Each State of Maturity Report will outline in detail the results of that organization’s survey compared to all respondents, with special attention paid to comparing organizations by size and type (ie municipalities or conservation authorities). Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about how a State of Maturity Report can help your organization with enhanced performance measurement related to your geospatial program.

Please contact us at if you have any questions about completing the GMI and OCI surveys for your organization.

“I participated in the GMI to refine my insights into how King County GIS compares to its peers and to help identify areas that we should target for improvement in the future.”

“The GMI survey brought up some really great ideas that I hadn’t considered, and are useful for any sized GIS Department – even my two person department.”
