HIGICC is a private non-profit organization of professionals and students from the federal, state, county, education, and private sectors of Hawai'i's GIS community. Our goal is to provide coordination of GIS activities among a wide range of GIS users in order to avoid duplication of effort, promote data sharing, and maintain data standards throughout the state.
HIGICC strives to bring together and continue to build the geographic community into a cohesive, recognized coordinating body that facilitates the use, development, sharing, and management of geographic data and communicates the value of geographic information to citizens and decision-makers. In the State of Hawaii, GIS is recognized and effectively used as an invaluable tool by the government, business and the citizens for understanding and managing our aina (environment). The Hawaii GICC is a shared mechanism for the diverse community to identify, explore, and solve problems using geospatial technology and information.
