The ICI Society was created to facilitate the sharing of location intelligence data – a key step leading to better decisions and better outcomes for its members and their stakeholders, the people of British Columbia. Today we are recognized nationally and internationally for our success in this regard, particularly our ability to bring all levels of government, utilities, and First Nations together.

We know that every great decision rests on a foundation of data. Equally, we know that access to data rests on the ability to forge strong social connections between people. We have the ability to bring people and data together to do something that would not be possible through solo or independent action, however well intended. We know that better outcomes for everyone can only happen when the people and the data they own come together in service of something bigger than their individual aspirations. This is why we exist.

Spatial data refers to information about a specific location on the surface of the Earth. No matter what field you work in, spatial data can help you see patterns, connections and relationships you might otherwise overlook. In doing so, the location intelligence embedded in spatial data enables you to do more, more effectively and efficiently. This is why the ICI Society exists – to be a “one-stop shop” for the best spatial data in British Columbia.
