Project Updates/Action Items
MGISAC Web SiteJason Warzinik
Old minutes continue to be imported. Membership list had recently been updated. Comments were made regarding making the formal switch sooner vs. later, instead of continuing with two sites.
Joplin Tornado Response
There were reports of situations where things worked well and others where things work poorly or even horribly. All agreed that we should use this experience to better prepare for future events. There is great need for high level coordination of volunteers in the geospatial arena. Also needed, is in the field tracking of what buildings have been searched with the ability to log this data on the fly into a GIS / Imagery application. There is a need to have better communication about where aerial imagery could be sourced.
2011 Missouri GIS Conference
2013 Missouri GIS Conference
The conference committee held two teleconferences and corresponded through email to design a rough outline of the 2013 conference. This information was provided to Jamie to research locations and cost. We expect Jamie will have information to share at the July meeting.
MGISAC Budget for FY12
Committee chairs and anyone else with strong interest in a particular budget item please submit to Spicci to appear on the FY12 budget. Budget will be presented and voted on at the July meeting.
Hesser: Redistricting is underway in two separate avenues: Congressional and Legislative. Congressional was completed by the General Assembly with House Bill 193. Legislative effort to re-draw the district boundaries is in process in both the House and Senate. Public hearings are complete; commissions have been formed to develop possible redistricting plans. The plans are being reviewed and will be finalize in late August.
MSDIS Geoportal Demo
Mark Duewell demonstrated the portal which is ~95% functional on data. There is still a lot to upload and they are converting coverages to shapefiles. A beta version of the site will be opened up to MGISAC members in the near future for testing and comments.
Data DevelopmentRay Fox

The Memphis Corp of Engineers plans to fly post flood LiDAR of the Mississippi / Ohio River flood.
