LANSING (AP) — Michigan is sharing data that will make it easier to map locations around the state.

The Department of Technology, Management and Budget says it has created a website where anyone can search, view and download Geographic Information Systems data.

Department director David Behen says the new site is a key piece of efforts to make information open and available to the public.

The website will include GIS data from state agencies, local municipalities and other sources.

Behen says the coordination and sharing of data from multiple agencies is a “great step forward.”
