The Local Government Information Model can be used to organize your geographic information and deploy the ArcGIS for Local Government maps and apps. It is a harmonized information model of GIS datasets designed to support the data management and analysis maps and apps deployed with an ArcGIS geodatabase.

The information model is supported by the ArcGIS for Local Government Service Catalog. This service catalog provides a collection of layers that can be used to publish feature layers in your ArcGIS organization and deploy a series of ArcGIS for Local Government solutions.

You can configure the information model and feature layers to support specific business needs in your organization by selecting and implementing specific features that are part of this integrated information model or by adding fields and modifying field and layer aliases to reflect terms more widely used in your organization.
