We are excited to announce the 88th Texas Legislature passed a bill to officially rename the Texas Natural Resources Information System (TNRIS) to the Texas Geographic Information Office (TxGIO). The official name change and updates to come will strengthen our ability to support innovation in the use and adoption of geographic information systems and promote the Texas GIS Community as a model and leader nationwide.
TxGIO is a reliable and unique state resource that provides high quality historic and current geospatial data products, education and training, while advancing the GIS Community through collaboration, expertise, cost-sharing initiatives and exceptional customer service.
TxGIO is a division of the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB).
The Director of TxGIO acts as the coordinator of the Texas Geographic Names Committee, the body charged with standardizing geographic names for the state of Texas.
