GIS Professionals at a workshop

A Meeting of the GIS Minds

Delaware’s GIS Community had a busy three days at the start of this week. A series of workshops and small-group meetings were held from October 19 through October 21 to gather input for the planned Delaware GIS Strategic Plan (funded by a grant from the Federal Geographic Data Committee).

Planning consultant Michael Terner, of Applied Geographics, met with a large group of GIS professionals from all sectors of the community on Tuesday at the Kent County Administration Building. On Wednesday, the DGDC Executive Committee held a workshop at the Haslet Armory. Also on Wednesday, there was a meeting with the University of Delaware’s GIS group.

And, while he was here, Mr. Terner met in small-groups with 911/PSAP administrators, county GIS staff, city GIS managers, MPO staff, the Department of Technology and Information, the Department of Safety and Homeland Security, the Governor’s Office, the Office of State Planning Coordination, and DelDOT.

Delaware has some of the best GIS people in the nation. They work at the state, county and city levels; in the private sector; and in the schools and universities. We’re a small but close-knit community of professionals who work well together, share data, and help each other serve our customers, clients and constituents.

But we know we can do even better. That’s why we’ve embarked on a journey of self-discovery and improvement: we’re writing a GIS Strategic Plan for Delaware and we need your help.

Please join in a comprehensive, strategic planning process for GIS and geospatial data in Delaware.

There will be a workshop on Tuesday, October 20, to get your thoughts on where we go from here. (more…)
