MSDIS General News
MSDIS would like to thank the Missouri State Assessor’s Association for inviting us to give a short presentation at their annual meeting at Tan-Tar-A on October 2nd. We were joined for the presentation by Dr. Soren Larsen, and provided a brief overview of both the role of the clearinghouse and the interest that Mizzou Geography has in addressing the needs of Missouri’s rural counties and communities.
We’d also like to thank all of our MGISAC colleagues who came out to the Department of Geography Open House event on September 13th. The event was extremely well-attended. Guests were able to meet with Mizzou Geography faculty and grad students, fly drones around the hallway, win door prizes, learn about internship and service opportunities, make s’mores, play games, review projects from former and current students, and enjoy pizza and cake.
Finally, we want to thank everyone who helped to make the metadata workshop on September 17th a big success. We had nearly a full room of participants who stuck with us for a full day of metadata lectures and who had some really fantastic questions about the competing standards, what makes for “complete” documentation, and general questions about why metadata standards seem to ask the same couple of questions so many times. We hope that it was a valuable time for everyone who attended.
Following up on a note from last month, we have continued to work with Mizzou Geography to determine how best to utilize our former space at Mizzou North. However, recent exchanges with representatives from the university offices in charge of facilities and space management have heavily hinted that Mizzou North is set for closure much sooner than we had anticipated. Fortunately, that off-campus space may no longer be as critical to our plans as we originally envisioned. We have received permission from Dr. Joseph Hobbs to repurpose the room currently being used to house the remnants of the Vietnam Institute as a dedicated space for MSDIS workstudy students.
No outages were reported during September 2019.

There is a need to get more GIS presence in emergency management. Get in contact with emergency managers and co-op with SEMA to add GIS topics to breakout sessions at their conference. A starting point is taking an inventory of our memberships current resource offering for folks in the emergency management industry. Consensus is to make it a Sub-Committee of Data Development. More details with be fleshed out at the next Data Development Committee meeting.
5.2 MOGIS Conference meeting held prior to MGISAC meeting. 2021 poll showed Columbia/Jeff city and St. Louis as areas of interest for the next conference. Discussion over RFP process. Suggested that we put out our own RFP for hotel in Columbia/Jeff city area. Option of with room block and without as we have had difficulties filling room blocks in the past. Suggested to put out a RFP for conference planning as well to cover our bases on cost. RFP for venue is moving forward. It was moved that the council purchase mogiscon.com for continuous use. Motion passed unanimously.
