State GIO ReportTim Haithcoat
Working with ITSD on broadband mapping proposals and RFP. Membership letters are back for almost everyone. Explanation of State capacity for signing conference contracts. The upshot is that it would be simpler to have the University to sign the contract. Discussion. Liz Cook signed the addendum for site selection for the 2011 Missouri GIS Conference. Jeff S: What is the status of the GIS Council proposal? Tim H: the CIO is still reviewing those, don’t have any feedback yet. Met as recently as Monday. Pam K: what is the progress on the meeting of academic entities? Tim H: none. Explanation of goal of coordination. Tim D: Do you have an update on Google Earth for Missouri imagery? Tim H: building a foundation within state agencies. There is a desire to have web standard services that can be pulled in by any entity. Discussion. Please remember that the GIO has no budget and no staff. Craig M: Is Google paying anyone for imagery? Tim H: No. Tony S: Microsoft has paid for some flights. The one nice thing Google has done is publish data if you ask them to. Craig M: I have heard that Google will ship two sets of drives and only ask for one back. Discussion.
No amendments submitted
