Meeting Recap

  • Minutes and Information
    • Minutes approved as read
    • Question on ArcGIS for Teams - supplements existing license, does not avoid the need for a license
  • Geospatial Summit
    • Esri Hands-on Learning Lab will be available
    • We have two keynotes, Adam Carnow and Bill Johnson
    • Early bird registration ends August 29
    • Discussed social ideas from past Geospatial Summits
  • USGS Liaison Report
    • Elaine shared her work on the new 100k on-demand map cartography
    • Using Esri's generalization models
    • Landcover - woodland, shrubland, cropland - these are new national coverages
    • 24k maps not impacted nor is data changed
  • Geospatial Brown Bag Lunch
    • Previously discussed in 2014 but tabled
    • These would be scheduled, e.g., quarterly, lunch-n-learn type of events sharing with all state agencies how GIS is used within the SGC agencies
    • No interest to provide these due to lack of time
  • GIS Asks
    • Explore the use of Kanban boards and listing of work to be done via Azure DevOps
    • Would be a way to prioritize and document Hub-related work that is needed by state agencies
    • Testing is underway for Hub-only work; appears to be a transparent way to communicate work load
  • Esri UC 
    • No attendance other than a few sessions
  • Roundtable/Forum
    • Oil and Gas has a new viewer that replaces the previous version that went away several months ago when it's server died
