The State of Maryland DoIT Geographic Information Office hosts and serves a large quantity of datasets, both spatial and non-spatial. Many of these datasets contain hundreds of thousands to millions of records.

To answer this question we need insights that human inspection just can't provide. Come learn about our automated approach to this issue and where you can view the results yourself.
