GIS Architecture Tim Haithcoat
Tim: Lots going on. Changes at OIT. Scott Willet left for DHSS. Temp OA person in place. Architecture Review meeting last Tuesday: Infrastructure domain, interoperability domain, security domain, information domain. GIT piece in information domain. Fit matrices being developed. Good overlap on information side, documents being drafted. Lots of information going up to MGISAC web site under architecture subcommittee soon. Glossary being developed. Interaction between domains and implications being discussed. Standards side: MODOT transportation standards most of the effort for next 6 weeks. Arnold: Street centerline standard probably first part of work. All MODOT standards will be pushed up through the state architecture group.
Homeland Security Mark Duewell, Tony Spicci
Tony: Meeting moved to 22nd. Time to be announced. Location at MDC. Have not heard back from Gerry Wethington about grant, hopefully soon. Meeting last month went fairly well, had round table discussion. Gerry Wethington is going to use 03 grant to develop the 04 grant. Tony met with Debbie Briedwell, Tracy Schloss, Col. Daniels, others on 12/4 to find out where GIS information is going to be housed and maintained and the security issues. Notes forthcoming. Col. Daniels would like to see a data policy for GIS data. Has asked MGISAC to develop. Greg Dorge pointed out that opinion received from the Atty General is that Sunshine law requires requested data to be given. Sunshine law major obstacle to adoption of GIS by local gov’t. Tim: lots of this data is available already. Greg: need someone from AG, State Tax, etc. Tony: this will be a long process. Discussion. Tony: is there consensus that this project should be moved out ofHomeSecand become its own subcommittee? Think about it and contact Tony. Col Daniels believes that every layer has to have a data steward. This will be tricky. HS meeting schedule likely to remain the same (3rd Friday of each month) in 2004. Long discussion of data security from Rick Goins.

Gary: met and exchanged ideas after meeting. Knows direction, but not quite how to get there. Hoping for something more concrete out after first of year.
