US: The State of Michigan has introduced a geographic information system (GIS) open data website to let the GIS community search, preview and browse and download geospatial datasets or view them on Esri ArcGIS maps. The site offers access to updated geospatial data on boundaries, geology, demographics, public health and other categories to help those in natural resources, public safety, environment, health and human services, transportation and tourism make more informed decisions. “This new site is a key piece of our overall efforts to make information open and available to citizens,” said David Behen, Director of Michigan’s Department of Technology Management and Budget.
