GeorgiaInfo is the online almanac for the state of Georgia. It is valuable as a ready reference resource for all things Georgia and is rich in information to support the K-12 Georgia studies curriculum. It provides historical and current information on Georgia's economy, geography, government, military, people, sports, tourism, wildlife, and more. GeorgiaInfo also offers current and historical maps as well as city and county information with statistics, courthouse pictures, historical markers, and more. Two popular features are This Day in Georgia History and This Day in Georgia Civil War History.
GeorgiaInfo is part of the Digital Library of Georgia and is hosted by GALILEO and the University of Georgia Libraries. GeorgiaInfo was created in 1996 by Ed Jackson, and with the assistance of Charles Pou, it was hosted by the Carl Vinson Institute of Government from its inception until 2008, when the site became a part of the Digital Library of Georgia and GALILEO, the state's virtual library.
The development of GeorgiaInfo was motivated by the conviction that such information, now readily accessible online, could help citizens and public officials make better-informed decisions that improve the quality of life in their communities.
