MSDIS General News
First of all, we want to thank the wonderful folks from the Missouri Mappers Association for allowing us to come speak at their annual conference in Springfield last month. It was a real treat to be able to talk with such a great group of people and explain the how-and-why of the changes that have been happening at MSDIS.
Next up, several weeks ago, we sent out a link to a test page of an alternate configuration of the MSDIS homepage. The new page removed the new and updated data list in favor of links to all of our primary data servers and download platforms. We have since officially implemented the new page as the default MSDIS homepage. The list of New and Updated Data list is still available from the Community section of the website. We’ve also made some minor changes to the Latest News sidebar in order to keep data and job updates more visible.
In personnel news, we’re very pleased to welcome Laura “L” Wiley to the MSDIS team. L comes to us in her final semester of coursework at Mizzou and will start out by tackling the overdue updates to the standard MXD templates that we use to complete map requests.
Finally, after several months of rumors, plans, and taking stock of business needs, we’ve moved!
Starting today, primary MSDIS operation have been relocated back to the Mizzou campus and we have been reunited with our Geography Department colleagues on the second floor of newly renovated Stewart Hall. While we enjoyed our time at Mizzou North and really do appreciate the outstanding space that was set aside for us, this change will allow us to network with the rest of campus much easier and will provide our workstudy students with a substantially move convenient workplace. We aren’t saying goodbye to our space or our friends at Mizzou North, though. Working with the Department of Geography, we have several goals for our Mizzou North space that are still in the initial planning stages but that we are very excited about and hope to share with you in the near future.
