The Coeur d’Alene Tribe has had an active Geographic Information System (GIS) program since 1992. The Tribe uses GIS technology to collect, store and analyze information about the lands it has traditionally used. Information is collected for environmental, social, and cultural geographic features. At this time, over 1,000 different GIS data sets are stored on the Tribe’s GIS servers.
All people of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe shall be able to realize the value of GIS technology and its appropriate uses to preserve and enhance the Tribe’s values, resources, and cultural history to improve the quality of life.
The mission of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe GIS is to coordinate, educate, guide, and assist the implementation, maintenance, and development of GIS technology and related data resources for the Tribe, our community, and the public.
