4.1 Missouri OGI Report — Paul Wright
This is my final report to the Council. The new Director will begin reporting as of January 2016. Thanks to all MGISAC members for your dedication to the tasks at-hand over the last 4½ years that I have been in this position.

  • Imagery Collection
    • Invoices from the 6 mid-Missouri counties (Boone, Callaway, Cole, Cooper, Howard, and Moniteau) have been received. Payments are in process.
    • The PAQ process to select the vendor for the northeast Missouri imagery collection has been completed. Surdex will be providing this service.
    • QA/QC of 2015 Western Missouri aerial leaf-off imagery continues.
  • Director-GIS A job opening was posted on 12/4/15 and will close 12/11/15. We hope to have the Director-GIS position filled by 12/31/15.
  • DHSS Training Facility DHSS has a training room at their facility that ITSD-GIS uses to provide GIS training for DHSS staff. ITSD-GIS worked with DHSS to pick-up the maintenance on the ESRI software located at the DHSS training room. An MOA is being developed that will allow ITSD-GIS to provide GIS training to other state organization personnel.

Adair Co. imagery has been acquired and will be bought by the State at the end of FY15 or beginning of FY16.
Rich Kliethermes has been appointed the interim CIO and is interested in attending a future meeting.
4.2 MSDIS report — Mark Duewell

  1. MSDISWEB/Imagery Virtual Servers update A clone image of both the primary Imagery and Web servers was created and archived. MSDIS and MU DOIT have agreed to regularly schedule this event. Images will also be accomplished after major changes.
  2. MSDIS presented a Metadata presentation at the St. Louis User Group meeting held at the East-West Gateway offices on November 10th. Attendance was very good (40+). The presentation is designed to remind people of the importance of metadata and as an announcement of upcoming regional metadata workshops early next spring.
  3. MSDIS presented to the children of Rockbridge Elementary School along with several other MGISAC members representing their agencies. The children seemed very interested in mapping and its applications. They were very well behaved (beyond all the excitement!).
  4. Geoportal There are now 2,828 of Missouri’s most recent geo-data files in the MSDIS Portal – a slight up-tick.
  5. Planning proceeds apace for the next MAGIC Clearinghouse Summit to be held in late summer early fall in Kansas, likely at Lawrence.

Added another 199 records to the NSGIC data inventory (formerly RAMONA).
Have been under cyberattack for the last four weeks and are taking appropriate countermeasures.
