Round Table Discussion all

David D: very happy to see people use the Wiki, will be happy to help more people begin to use the Wiki.
Mark D: please sign up for O&E if interested
Tony S: MDC moving forward with enterprise GIS, will integrateDBsinto a single DBMS. Will take a couple years.
Jeff S: MERIT registers opening soon, will post on MSDIS page and email. OA converting MERIT system from paper to digital, some questions about data transfer. Class specifications can be revisited as part of conversion.
Ryan L: question about spurious MSDIS job listing – Mark D. responded that job had been reasearched and was a valid posting – the “jobs” section of the site does provide a small amount of income from private buisnesses – hesitant to drop any funding source – he suggested such non-GIS postings go under an “other jobs” heading.
Mark D: had to move USGS forum
