New versions of Hawaii Island and Oahu were released by the USGS in December 2011. The new versions contain updates to GNIS names and IDs.
The datasets are available for download in geographic coordinates at the National Hydrography Dataset’s Pre-Staged Subregions ftp site:
Reprojected datasets in UTMzone 4N are available from the Hawaii State GIS Program web site (http://hawaii.gov/dbedt/gis). Please contact Malie Beach-Smith (malie.beach-smith [at] doh.hawaii.gov) for assistance in obtaining reprojected datasets in Albers, State Plane, or others, or for comments and questions.
HIGICC is a private non-profit organization of professionals and students from the federal, state, county, education, and private sectors of Hawai'i's GIS community. Our goal is to provide coordination of GIS activities among a wide range of GIS users in order to avoid duplication of effort, promote data sharing, and maintain data standards throughout the state.
HIGICC strives to bring together and continue to build the geographic community into a cohesive, recognized coordinating body that facilitates the use, development, sharing, and management of geographic data and communicates the value of geographic information to citizens and decision-makers. In the State of Hawaii, GIS is recognized and effectively used as an invaluable tool by the government, business and the citizens for understanding and managing our aina (environment). The Hawaii GICC is a shared mechanism for the diverse community to identify, explore, and solve problems using geospatial technology and information.
