4. MGISAC Administration
4.1 Missouri OGI Report — Paul Wright
Imagery/Data Development

  • No update. Budgets are still being developed in light of recent restrictions.
  • OA Purchasing is in the process of C213036004 renewing the imagery contract. Emails went out to the vendors last week to provide information to OA for that renewal.

Internal Projects

  • Chemical Buffer Map – The purpose of this project was to develop a web map that would enable users to click on a chemical site, geocoded location information provided by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), to generate a buffer, which will then be used to produce a list of affected sites for vulnerable populations (e.g. day cares, schools, nursing homes). The application was completed in late June. We are now discussing its integration into the SEMA WebEOC (emergency operations center) environment.
  • Plan Updates – A draft of OGI’s updated Office Plan, Communications Plan and Strategic Plan have been forwarded to the state CIO’s Office for review and comment. The strategic plan format was redeveloped based on OA/ITSD’s overall strategic plan. The updated plans will be available on the OGI web site once reviewed and approved by the CIO.
  • ESRI Contract – The ESRI software/services contract expired at the end of February. An extension was put into place until the end of May. That extension also expired with no new contract being established. Another extension was agreed to and will expire August 31. OA Purchasing is to have a new full contract in place prior to this latest extension’s expiration.
  • Mapping Application Security – OGI is working with other groups within OA/ITSD to develop a standard practice for securing web based mapping applications. This is for overall security including login procedures. A process has been identified that we will be testing over the next few months.
  • LiDAR – This project is for implementing LiDAR data storage solutions for all consolidated state agencies plus MoDOT and MDC, streamlining the flow of data, reducing redundant copies and storage costs, and making the data available on a much wider basis. We are currently evaluating a proposed change in data management strategy per state data center (SDC) staff informing us that archives cannot be retained indefinitely. We are contacting MDC, MoDOT, SEMA to finalize cost-sharing before rollout. OGI is to load additional grid data, archive LAS files, update status map and data, and refresh documentation.

4.2 MSDIS report — Mark Duewell

  1. GeoPortal: Both servers are up and operational and we’re beginning the initial work to bring up the Rolla MSDISWeb site. DOIT is installing OS and configuring the partition. Louisa Haithcoat’s configuration of the 2007-2009 2′ Imagery for the State for the GeoPortal continues to make good progress. The count shows 3305 complete of 4202 files. When the metadata manipulation required for GIS Inventory/FGDC is complete they’ll all go up at once. Current Portal record count is 540.
  2. Broadband “Structures” Project: Structures Digitizing Progress: We’re still in the process of review and analysis of the data points and footprints as RPCs continue to return their reviewed data. Only one RPC has not yet turned in their Phase II Structures. We are still digitizing in East-West Gateway but very close now to completing both that RPC and the State. Total “Structures” count stands at 4,940,842. Total footprints count stands at 275,756.
  3. MSDIS has been working with East-West Gateway and MORAP to serve their Ecological Significance Project data through both FTP and web mapping services. The results of that work can be viewed at msdisweb-nn.col.missouri.edu

6.9 2015 Missouri GIS Conference — Mark Duewell
A conference call meeting of the 2015 MOGISCON co-chairs (Marsh, Copeland, M. Duewell), MGISAC Treasurer (Cook) and Custom Meeting Planners (Schieber) was held June 21st. The discussion was an in-depth review of the budget by Marsh and Schieber. A brief summary of the outcome is as follows: the salient fact that the Council is now on a two year budget means we might need to make some adjustments in our approach to the conference budget. It was felt that we should be planning a conference for the first time that was not budgeted to “break even” or even to lose money (initial Chesterfield budget); we must budget a conference to make enough money to support the two year Council planned budget. However, we did still want to let the “Steering Committee” make suggestions and prioritize the budget. To that end two conference calls have been set up:
Call #1 – July 16th – 1:30 – 2:30pm
Call #2 – July 21st – 10:30 – 11:30am
The calls will provide an opportunity for all steering committee members to make an initial contribution to the planning of conference activities and prioritizing the budget. It is hoped we’ll have a DRAFT budget available for the August MGISAC Meeting.
