Missouri GIO ReportTim Haithcoat/Paul Wright
Haithcoat: Trying to get Doug Young on the schedule in July. Wright: Enterprise Advantage Program in place with Esri. MSDIS image server bandwidth test occurred a couple weeks ago, results under review. Office now in room 840 of the Truman building. Aerial Survey contract discussions with State Purchasing and Procurement. No update on the cadastral survey. Discussing OGI/GIO effectiveness metrics; would like to discuss at the next meeting. Haithcoat: have added a lot of components to the aerial survey. Requesting any review criteria that have already been written.
MSDIS ReportMark Duewell
Duewell via email: Geoportal: Esri’s second visit accomplished significantly more last week than the first visit. All the major issues that we knew about have been solved – we have a lot of work ahead to populate the data in the portal and then configure the page aesthetics to reflect a closer alignment to the state sites. Look for an announcement to the MGISAC later this month or early next month regarding a beta release to the group followed by a public beta release. Haithcoat: a lot of flooding imagery has been added. Very close to launching the state broadband site.
Cadastral Standard Rulemaking ProcessDarrell Pratte, State Land Surveyor
Recent legislation directs the State Land Surveyor to develop cadastral mapping standards. Three stakeholder meetings are planned, roughly the beginning of June, middle of July, and end of August. Requesting ideas regarding cadastral mapping standards from everyone. Draft review by different disciplines afterward. Would like to avoid dissention during public comment. Discussion about how to get input from all stakeholders. Pratte: the early legwork of the rulemaking process has been done. Wagner: look to Illinois and Iowa; they already have cadastral standards. Further general discussion about the need for and benefits of a standard and how different stakeholders (primarily assessors and surveyors) may react.

Data DevelopmentRay Fox
Homeland Security/Emergency ManagementDebbie Briedwell
Briedwell via email: Did not meet this month. The MoIMT (Missouri Infrastructure Mapping Tool) which provides a portable Google Earth application with critical infrastructure in KML format, was released last week at the SEMA conference. The County Mapbooks are also now available to download. The State EOC has been activated since Monday April 25 for flooding in the southern portion of the state. Staff at SEMA, DHSS, National Guard, and DNR Water Resource Center have been working to provide GIS support since that time. Besides providing support to State agencies, we have also been providing GIS support to the EMAC in Sikeston, and the EOC in Stoddard County. The International Charter was activated on Thursday April 28th. The IC provides commercial satellite imagery during times of disaster at no charge. Since that time we have acquired LandSat, Quickbird, SPOT, and other imagery. The University of Missouri has set up a secure Image Service to serve this out to SEMA, and HyperSpectral Imagery from the Civil Air Patrol for DNR. A new tool was tested that allows Emergency personnel to upload geotagged photos on a website and they are then provided as a georss feed or kml feed. This has worked very well, with the National Guard, local EMs and the EPA Region 7 taking advantage of the tool. While the SEOC is still activated, we have slowed down considerably as the waters go down. There are still 5 active shelters in the Southeast portion of the state with a total population of 62 as of yesterday. Robinson: still getting requests to host US National Grid training; will discuss at the next committee meeting.

Strategic PlanningShannon White/Jeff Schloss
MAGIC ConsortiumSteve Marsh
Getting the IRS return ready.
Spicci/Drum: recent discussion on the mailing list has been about RAMONA/GISInventory and metadata capabilities. GISInventory is a great asset for local government and emergency management. GISInventory does not hold your data. It is only a lookup of what data exists. White: how do we get on the NSGIC mailing list? Discussion about MGISAC’s level of membership with NSGIC.
