Meeting Recap

  • NAIP 2016 is 100% acquired; we will obtain this data as soon as it’s available.
  • We are in the early stages of preparing for the geodatabase upgrade, beginning with getting users to use 2-tier instead of 3-tier connections which are no longer supported by Esri
  • Bismarck-Mandan LiDAR and imagery is being QA'd
  • MAGIC Clearinghouse Summit topics included:
    • Creative Commons licensing - very early discussions, will be doing more and is something that we here in ND should be looking at discussing
    • Boundaries - looking at creating a common data model and improving data workflow
    • Census Bureau - partnership opportunities
    • Cloud - Amazon geospatial lead provided a great presentation. We saw the power of hosting data and apps on AWS
  • Walked through the use of Esri's Community Parcels to aggregate county parcel datasets into a compiled feature class.  More work needs to be done and then will share with the contributing counties.
  • New datum refresher - there is a video describing what's coming.  We didn't have time to view it
  • GIS Meetups - Tyler of Houston Engineering visited the GISTC today to discuss getting a GIS meetup going
    • The first meeting is September 21 at BSC
    • A couple of presentations will be made at the start of the meeting followed by a discussion of possible community mapping projects
