Meeting Recap

  • Welcomed new members from the DOT, DOH, PSC, DTL
  • Review minutes/informational items
  • Census Data Training
    • Appears to be some interest in inviting Kevin from Census Office of the Department of Commerce - once focus topic(s) has/have been defined
    • Census Bureau has training resources here: https://www.census.gov/data/academy.html
  • GNIS Archival
    • Would be useful for 911-related to have historical populated places 
    • The Board on Geographic Names stores this information but this information is not included when we download it for the Hub.  Bob will follow up.
  • ArcGIS in Teams
    • Bob provided a brief demo
    • Takes some getting use to and has yet to define a clear use for this
    • However, this might be useful in providing a glimpse of geospatial to non-geospatial users of Teams
  • Statewide Coordination
    • Previously discussed in 2019
    • We need a means of engaging more people across the state
    • Sean suggested approaching this as a users group instead, and Ann added to that concept to create focused user groups
  • Roundtable/Open Forum
    • Phil enjoyed the MAGIC conference
    • Brian B has submitted his letter of retirement
