Approval of March Minutes – Motion made and seconded. Motion to approve March minutes pass unanimously.

MGISAC Administration

4.1 OGI Report – In Covid mode. Some content getting hit hard and giving ESRI servers trouble. GIS specialist position still open.

4.2 MSDIS Report – Thanks to the continued hard work and dedication of Mollie Webb, the LiDAR tile downloads have been reworked and restored. As with previous notes about this issue, there is still the very real possibility that, out of 100,000+ links, there are some that are still improperly directed. Rather than ask Mollie to once again remap the new URLs, we are exploring the feasibility of adding an additional download link to each tile that points to the project folder rather than the individual file. In doing so, users would have the option of trying to use the direct link and, if that fails, linking to the project folder and navigating to the specific file themselves. MSDIS and MCDC have released another jointly developed story map application. While the Missouri Kids Count story map was originally meant to debut on Census Day to draw attention to the fact that children are notoriously undercounted during the census, the application has been repurposed to highlight some of the risk factors that children face during this uncertain time. We will add additional maps to this application over the coming weeks.

Also, please consider sharing this opportunity with your local schools! Students across the United States are using ArcGIS online to explore and create intriguing maps of their communities and the broader world each and every day. Esri, the Missouri Botanical Garden, and Lindenwood University are challenging Missouri students to create and share maps representing something within their home state. The ArcGIS Online U.S. School Competition 2020 is open to high school (grades 9–12) and middle school (grades 4–8) students in the U.S. who can analyze, interpret, and present data via an ArcGIS Online presentation, web app, or story map. The top five entrants from each age division will receive a $100 gift card and will move to the national level competition. (Teams of two will split the $100 gift card.) The top national project in each level will travel to San Diego, California for the 2020 Esri Education Conference. School entries are due at 5 p.m. Central time on May 1, 2020
