Purpose

Welcome to the Map Islands Trust, your island information web portal. The contained pages provide public access to a wide selection of ecological, property, and community planning information maintained within the Islands Trust Geographic Information System (GIS).

Our mission is to provide as much useful information as possible through our open data initiative, standard maps, and intuitive web applications.

Watch for new applications, datasets and maps in the in the coming months. We hope you enjoy using these resources.

Technology

The Islands Trust’s Geographic Information System (GIS) contains a wide variety of spatial information, made available primarily using ESRI’s ArcGIS software. ArcGIS is an integrated collection of GIS software products that provides a standard platform for spatial information management, analysis and mapping. The majority of our applications, datasets and maps were built and are maintained using ArcGIS and a variety of web-based technologies.
