In 1997-1998, the City of Clarksville and Montgomery County entered the State of TN GIS Base Mapping Project Pilot. The pilot created a variety of GIS resources for both the City and County. In order to properly leverage the data, GIS services were needed. The CMC GIS Center was formed. The Center was a joint venture between the City, County, and APSU. From approximately 1998-2004, the Center serviced only Clarksville/Montgomery County. Beginning in 2004-05, the CMC GIS Center began attracting additional clients including Cheatham County and TN Homeland Security District 7. To better reflect the regional nature of the Center, it was renamed the APSU GIS Center. The APSU GIS Center continues to serve as a GIS and technology resource in our region.
