Welcome to the Appalachian Ohio Geospatial Data Partnership
The Appalachian Ohio Geospatial Data Partnership (AOGDP) is a nonprofit organization of professionals from the Appalachian region of Ohio with an interest in Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Our Partnership was formed to facilitate the development of standardized GIS data across county boundaries and in multiple jurisdictions - between Federal, State, Regional, & Local Governments, Academia, Non-Profits, and Private Industry. A collaborative environment built on Educating, Creating, Sharing, and Maintaining.
Latest News & Upcoming Events
In early 2016, AOGDP leadership discussed taking on a collaborative tourism project for our region. It was discussed that there are many incredible and detailed mural paintings throughout the region. Many tourism boards note that these murals draw tourists in and help them associate a person or an event with that place. AOGDP decided that an interactive online map showcasing all these artistic pieces could be valuable for showing the strong sense of place that Appalachian Ohio is about.
AOGDP worked tirelessly over the first six months of 2017 to create a brand new, mobile-friendly website. This site has new versions of our hosted viewers in addition to the new look and feel. These updated map viewers work on iPads, Android devices as well as traditional PCs. The previous site content is slowly being converted to this new site. If there are dead links or new posts you are looking for please contact us.
