Following its mandate to facilitate an environment whereby government agencies and private organisations can seamlessly access and share geospatial data, MyGOS provides users with an intuitive workspace to work collaboratively.

It allows users to create groups and invite others to work together on projects, and to share maps, data, and other content. Furthermore, users can also create public groups so that they can share data outside of their organisation.

Information available in the portal include: The 1Malaysia map, Air Pollutant Index and Management System, 2013 General Election, hotspots, Malaysian standard geographic information, MyGeoName, and Road Networks.
