Michigan opens GIS portal

Michigan has launched a geographic information systems 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 provides 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.

The data  can be downloaded as Esri shapefiles, spreadsheets or KML files, as well as accessed via API.

“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. “Pulling it all together in one place will improve the overall experience for everyone.”
