Geographic Information Services
Maps are moments in the process of decision-making. -Denis Wood
The Legislative Coordinating Commission's Geographic Information Services is the repository of statewide boundary information for legislative use. The office maintains a map library of spatial information, provided by the Census Bureau and a host of Minnesota State agencies, that can be integrated with many sources of information to produce maps and reports of pertinent information for legislators and legislative staff. Such information includes demographics, elections, natural resources and infrastructure to name a few. LCC-GIS also provides the Legislature with the means to do Redistricting once every 10 years in conjunction with the Census. The Redistricting process uses many map layer data sets which LCC-GIS provides and assists in maintaining.
