Imagery for the State

White Paper #3, Funding Strategies

Several minor edits were made to Erics white paper including more discussion on the QC of the buy-up data. Decision made to have the partners buying up responsible for their QC, if they can not then Fed/State partners will help as resources permit. As part of this Ray Fox will link USGS QC guidelines on the MGISAC website.

QC of the imagery – who will do what,

MODOT will assume responsibility for QC of the State Plane data, USGS will do some of the UTM. As the two datasets should only have different projections, MODOT and USGS will coordinate the QC, and not have to do a complete QC of both sets of data. USGS resources may not allow for a full QC, help is requested from other partners. Liz Cook agreed to do the QC of the four counties NRCS will provide imagery for.

Initial look at the 2007 imagery from Surdex

Ray reported on the initial USGS review of the sample data provided from Surdex.

NSGIC Poster Opportunity

Do we want to do something on Imagery for the State? NSGIC will have room for some posters during the annual conference in Madison. The Data Development Committee will plan on providing a poster with Imagery for the State and other activities.

Walk On Items:

Tony Spicci reported that he has received letters of interest from a number of counties and cities. A graphic showing these areas will be prepared and made available on the MGISAC website.

Due to the number of buy-up requests Tony Spicci will enquire about the contractor resampling the buy-up areas to provide for complete two foot coverage in the RFP.

Revisit of the data themes.
