Pueblo of Sandia
GIS Program https://sandiapueblo.nsn.us/lands/gis-program/
"In 1996, the Pueblo of Sandia recognized that Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology was a powerful tool to effectively support infrastructure management activities. GIS has the ability to support tribal decision-making by analyzing geographic or spatial information and then developing associated GIS data along with the development of relevant maps and reports. Over the years, the Pueblo of Sandia GIS program has grown into a robust technical services program that provides GIS technology and products related to Enterprise Geodatabase management, asset and infrastructure management, mapping, GIS and Global Positioning Systems (GPS) data collection, GIS Map Books, Portal for ArcGIS and online web mapping applications to the Pueblo of Sandia. The GIS program securely manages and maintains all of the valued cultural, natural, political and infrastructure asset data for the Pueblo of Sandia.
The goal of the Pueblo of Sandia’s GIS Program is to securely manage, maintain and update the Pueblo’s geospatial data efficiently and enforce data integrity. The primary objective was to adopt cutting edge geospatial technology toolsets and modernize the GIS infrastructure to organize and manage all geospatial data with a logical system to move towards building a comprehensive geospatial asset management system. These goals allowed the GIS team to track our spatial assets, maintain records and manage an accurate geospatial data inventory. It also facilitated access and data delivery to all authorized users including our non-GIS audience to data that is centralized and secure that they can adopt and use as a Pueblo-wide decision making tool for planning processes."
