Maryland Geo Share

​Maryland Geo Share is the second of Maryland's ArcGIS Online (AGOL) organizations, on Esri’s cloud platform. This resource is an online collection of data, maps, apps, tools, and geographic knowledge dedicated to collaboration and partnerships between the local, regional, universities and state Geographic Information Systems (GIS) user communities. MD Geo Share facilitates data and information sharing during emergencies and steady state to help Maryland be a more resilient, prepared and responsive state.

Service Level Objective (SLO):

Maryland Geo Share has a 99.9% uptime service level objective; excluding planned outages, maintenance windows and unavoidable events.

An additional benefit is the ability for Emergency Managers and GIS users within local jurisdictions to host, maintain and share a suite of damage collection tools.
