This year, Baton Rouge celebrates its bicentennial since being incorporated by the Louisiana Legislature.  Originally discovered in 1699 by French explorer D’Iberville, Baton Rouge is rich in history.  From a “Red Stick” marking the boundary between two Native American hunting grounds to an enterprise GIS program, maps have always been an important part of our city.  French, English, Spanish, and American colonists plotted boundaries and points of interest on their maps just as city leaders do today in managing the growth and development of Baton Rouge.  Since 1993, the East Baton Rouge Parish GIS Program (eBRGIS) has matured from just a basemap to a nationally-recognized program providing mission critical services to support government operations, as well as key decision-making tools and applications for all residents and stakeholders.
