CommunicationsDavid Drum

Explored videoconferencing options available throughMOREnet. Small groups (up to 8) may use a tool called PCX with camera and mic to meet. Larger groups would need to use aCentra session. There are also options involvingTCRCs, public library video rooms, or some combination of the above. Each have advantages and disadvantages. Discussion. Request to demo both tools. Ryan L: Teleconferencing $5/hour plus 7c/minute for 800 number access. Discussion. Nathan M: free tool calledVRVS. David D: could complicate minute-taking. Discussion.

Data DevelopmentRay Fox/Jeff Schloss

Ray: Held teleconference on Monday. We were informed that the County Assessors are changing in September, and the new Assessors and existing ones may not communicate with one another. Due to that we may want to hold off on the survey until October. We can discuss at our next meeting. We will have another call on August 1. I will plan on having it at 10:00 again. If this is not a good time please let me know sooner than later so I can get back to everyone.

Education and OutreachRyan Lanclos

June 16 Digital Government Summit probably full; Mark Duewell setting up MSDIS and MGISAC booths. Nathan M: Presented at Business Information Technology Institute for high school students with Tracy Schloss. 20 students ages 15-17; none had heard of GIS. Pretty sharp, those that were awake; should try to continue to be part of the Institute. Has idea for 4-H GIS Day one day at the State Fair to focus on GIS activities in the state and tie into things already being done by agencies. Have six six-foot displays in 4-H building for groups without other home at Fair. Discussion. Tell Nathan what day would be best for you. Fair runs August 11-21. Jeff Schloss: time to set another GIS Day at the Capitol? A: Yes.

Four grants: law enforcement, City/County, etc. Gary Mook, via email: “I have started my assignment and have identified the cities we know have GIS in the (8-co.) region. There are 26 total, with 21 of those being in Missouri. I have one of my people trying to contact each and flesh out the info requested on s/w, data, etc. with end of month as deadline.” Steve Marsh, via email: “I would emphasize that last months’ meeting was the best we have had in 2 years. We have set some small, attainable goals that will enable us to make some forward progress.”
