Northeast Regional MeetingPam Kelrick
No date yet but a draft agenda. Probably some time in March 2009. Will be held at county annex building (2nd choice) or at regional conservation office (1st choice). Steve M: should ask if funding from MAGIC is still being held. Tim H: there is a SEMA meeting March 24-27 that will probably affect both speakers and attendees of your meeting. Liz C: are you going to be requesting funds from MGISAC? Pam K: no. Discussion about dates. Steve M: would it be worthwhile to roll together aspects of the regional workshop and rural GIS summit? Pam K: that was discussed. Discussion.
State/Local Data Sharing DiscussionTim Haithcoat
Get the draft. Overview of changes since prior version. Discussion. Jim L: motion to approve the document for use by the CIO with inclusion of public/private flags. Seconded by Colin Duewell. Steve M: concerned about V. “CIO-MO” 4; could supersede entire document. Tim H: Jackson county has already signed this document through MARC. Steve: I had the same issue with MARC, but MARC doesn’t give out data; they point requesters to the individual local government entity. Discussion. Debbie B: since this is for MERIS, should the CIO be the signatory, or the Director of Public Safety? Discussion. Friendly amendment from Debbie B to change “and” to “or” in VI. 2. (“or the Participating Organizations”) and to add a category “Other” in Attachment A. Call to Question. Motion passes by vote.
Google Earth DiscussionTim Haithcoat
Get the draft. Would like this committee to forward this document to the State Architecture committee. Motion from Kevin K, seconded by Colin D, to approve document. Renee R: concerned about expenses that could be used to fund internal projects that would produce similar results. Jeff S: unsure of the need; listed shortcomings. Tim: most people don’t need analysis. We don’t have a consistent basemap across agencies. Discussion. Call to question. Motion withdrawn by Kevin K, concurred by Colin. Steve M: suggest drafting a letter acknowledging need for a tool but that more work needs to be done. More discussion. Steve will draft a letter to the MAEA detailing why the Google Earth document was not approved and what MGISAC is doing to address the situation. Aaron Addison is writing up a companion document onArcExplorer. Tracy Schloss will write up a companion document on Microsoft Virtual Earth.
