The National Geographic Information Centre (NGIC) is part of the Geographic Operations Group (GOG) within the Ministry of Lands, Housing & Survey in Honiara.
The NGIC is under the directives of the Surveyor General, who legally, is responsible for mapping and associated information of the whole country. This covers the standards of surveys, the collection of information, the preparation of maps and the proper storage of this information.

The NGIC provides three basic services for its customers:
- Production & sale of standard map products - these standard maps are readily available for purchase at the Map Sales Counter at the NGIC office.
- Servicing Special Mapping Requests - these maps are one off compilations that require additional time and effort to produce.
- Supply of Digital Data in GIS format to government ministries and NGO’s for use on national significant projects.
