Data DevelopmentRay Fox/Jeff Schloss

Trying to pull together last of first year funding for state imagery. Second year funding commitments pretty much in place. Comments from Mark D that locals are feeling left out of the process. Discussion. Suggestion from Steve M to have session at the conference to communicate and answer questions. Discussion. Tim H: there may be money from USGS beyond what has been committed. Liz C: USDA budget is trashed and NAIP is in jeopardy. USDA is out of the picture.

Tim H: NSGIC is working on helping states with these issues. Discussion.

Mostly occupied withMOGIS07activities. Need to designate someone to set up MGISAC booth. Wonderful facility for April regional workshop, will probably get 50 attendees. Opening comments, presentations from us and locals. Audience may consist more of managers and other decision makers rather than techs, or may split by morning/afternoon.

Missouri GIS Conference

Doing much better, try to register before 1/15, workshops have really picked up. Mark D: extend early registration? Jamie: could. Steve M: need to because some recent presenters have not registered yet. Discussion. Current registration at 84. Early registration extended to January 31.


Have all but 8 sessions confirmed, only 5 open slots. Sessions are weighted toward vendors.


80 slots filled, registrations for the addressing workshop very low, otherwise numbers are at or close to 10 each.


21 slots filled, 8 pending, think all slots will be filled. Have a platinum sponsor vendor.


Have 14 or 15 posters submitted, including students from Lincoln University.


Waiting for quote from D-Sport.

Everything is on track. Jim L: vendors are very pleased that attendees will spend so much time in the vendor area.
