The Strategic Plan in 2012 identified several key needs and goals for a statewide geospatial/GIS program. The following working groups were identified in supporting these goals. Most of the work assigned to the groups has veen completed. The Strategic plan was reveiwed in 2018 to affirms that these key needs are still important to the statewide geospatial/GIS program. These work groups and standard, along with the strategic plan are revisited in a timely manner and the work groups are reformed to address any needed changes.

The NebraskaMAP working group is about data sharing – "Build it once, share it many." Currently, NebraskaMAP is on its 3 revision and serves as a geospatial clearinghouse and provides access to over 100 data layers for Nebraska. NebraskaMAP is a multi-use enterprise platform. This will further help users gain access to authoritative and peer-reviewed NESDI data, maps, applications, and GIS web services. This working group also provides data sharing guidelines and standards.
