MGISAC Administration

Announcements/Executive Activity

CIO: RFP for western half of state to OA Bill B will try to accelerate process of getting it out on the street. Tim Haithcoat has officially accepted the Geographic Information Officer position. Tim will be a shared resource – splitting his time between ITSD and his current position at the University of Missouri. Tim will be taking on all the responsibilities of the position and will be a POC for current grant efforts.

The CIO wanted to publicly acknowledge the previous GIO – Tony Spicci thanking him for his solid service to the state and GIO position.

The committee should begin to think about GIS Briefs or sound bytes that could be provided to legislative members a simple laminated one page list of how or where GIS impacts a legislators district or constituents. The card would resembles current offerings by ITSD but would empower legislators with GIS functionality and usefulness.

Questions for the CIO:

Ray F Western Side Imagery for the State RFP local budgets need setting ASAP some by November can the RFP make it through the OA process in time? Bill B. will follow up on this with OA.

Debbie B can examples of the ITSD card be distributed?

Outreach & EducationMark Duewell/David Drum/Jim LaScala

Mark D: Discussed results of Southeast regional Meeting Survey Monkey analysis. Local presentations were particularly well received. Mark D attended Southwest User Group Regional meeting on 10/4 with Ray F – over 80 in attendance. The meeting had a very good poster session and some excellent presentation content. Mark mentioned the next GIS Legislative Day and that a lead would have to be found for this activity. Since David Drum by all accounts did so well with it last year Mark is hoping David will again take on this mantle

Data Sharing Position Discussion

A very broad discussion of a data sharing position to be promoted by the MGISAC Committee was facilitated by a trained volunteer – Jeff Patridge, DHSS. Jeff does have an extensive GIS background but is also a trained facilitator. The initial meeting lasted at least 2 hours and covered defining the issues by defining data and sharing and how they relate to what the committee wants to develop as an official position on data sharing. Jeff created extensive post-it posters the contents of which hell format and share at or before the next discussion meeting.
