Meeting Recap

  • Minutes and Information
    • Geospatial Roadmap RFI results come in next week
    • Mark S. has left the PSC to return to BSC
    • Kim Weis is the new North Dakota Chief Data Officer
  • Tribal Discussion
    • This was meant to be an informal discussion to get SGC members connected with key people with knowledge of tribal-related information and data. A primary focus was authoritative data sources and key contacts for things like roads, parcels, etc.  and a clarification of reservation boundaries/tribal lands.
    • Bookmarks used during the meeting:
    • Specific data related questions such as boundaries, should be sent to the BIA Regional Geospatial Coordinator
    • Recommended to avoid the use of “tribal” and instead use just “trust lands”
    • Not all off-reservation lands are trust lands, might be allotment lands
    • The use of the term, “Indian Community” as shown on the ND Indian Affairs website is used since the tracts are not contiguous, but “service area” is a better term
  • Geospatial Interest Group - tabled
  • Geospatial Future State - tabled
  • Strategic Plans and Goals - tabled
  • Roundtable/Open Forum
    • Parks and Recreation has released a new reservation system today, and they now have a trails app that shows at this time only Parks and Recreation trails.  The app uses the 'OuterSpatial' app
