  1. How long will it take me to complete the survey?

    We estimate that a manager who is knowledgeable about their organization and GIS operation should be able to complete the survey in about one hour. Of course, this may vary.

  2. Who will have access to my detailed data?

    Your detailed data will be stored on the GMI’s secure database. Only authorized GMI researchers will be able to access your individual agency data.

  3. Can I save my data and finish the survey after I start it?

    Yes. Once you start you will receive a registration number that will allow you to return to the survey until you are ready to submit it.

  4. What if a term found in the survey differs from my understanding of that term?

    Please consult the GIS Capability Maturity Model Glossary of Terms and base your responses on the definitions provided. By referring to and applying definitions in the Glossary, individuals and organizations that complete the survey will assist in consistent understanding, analysis, and comparison.

  5. Will my organizations name and detailed data be made public?

    If you are willing to have your organization’s information shared for comparative purposes, you will have an opportunity to provide the GMI with permission at the end of the survey.
