Georgia GIS Coordinating Committee (GISCC) Conducting Statewide Geospatial Strategic Planning Activities

The Georgia GIS Coordinating Committee (GISCC) is conducting statewide Geospatial Strategic Planning activities to elicit input from as many folks as possible in developing a Geospatial Strategic Plan for Georgia. This is an USGS/Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) federally-funded effort in partnership with the Georgia Tech Center for GIS. We want to hear the voice of friends and members of the Clearinghouse.

Some of the main goals include sustainable funding for the Georgia GIS Clearinghouse (FY09 funding is uncertain), an ESRI Enterprise License Agreement for Georgia and legitimacy for the Georgia GIS Coordinating Committee (GISCC).

Below is the Activities Announcement (which includes 5 regional Input Sessions, starting in ATL on Oct 1), invitation to an Executive Technology Briefing (Oct 20, Senior-Level Government Executives only) and a live online Geospatial Survey.
