NSGICTony Spicci

Bill in Congress, FLAIR Act (H.R. 1370), identify Federal land (to sell) by Rep. Cannon of Utah. Developed by MAPPS. Goal to develop cadastre of federal land. NSGIC substituted some language, tie-in to NSDI, Federal standards, neutralize MAPPS-only membership language. No companion language in House [should be Senate?]. Western states supportive (Nevada is 70% federal land). Discussion. Geospatial One Stop v. 2 portal awarded to ESRI, basically will be able to “google” GIS data. Discussion. Mention ofhttp://maps.google.com/. Tony S: Project Homeland: NGA program not dissimilar to GOS to harvest data in event of “event”. Tim H: work with ESRI on data integration issues. Ray F: secure side of National Map basically same thing as Project Homeland. BARGIS (Bay Area) and Colorado pilots. Very large document, will place at MSDIS (documenthere). Issue of data being shared.

Conference generated about $45,000, cost about $41,000, so about $4,000 generated. 2007: October or February, vote split. Tan-Tar-A: President’s Day week, can shift forward one day, will affect salon availability but workshops can move to Thursday and avoid availability problem. Would like to decide today.
