  • A MESSAGE FROM MGISAC (07/25/14)

    The Missouri GIS Advisory Council (MGISAC) Local Government Committee is asking for your help in updating our information on the status of GIS in Missouri.

    This is a follow-up to a phone survey that was done in 2012 when we contacted counties in Missouri. With this new survey we are reaching out to counties, cities, and towns. Our goal is to understand where and how GIS is used by local government in the state, including data practices.

    The Local Government Committee within MGISAC strives to be a voice for the 114 Missouri counties and the many cities and towns that are interested in and using geospatial technology.

    Our goal is to promote local and regional discussion on GIS issues and foster cooperation between agencies and stakeholders. We are hoping to use crowd sourcing to get the word out about this survey to people who may not be on these mailing lists.

    Please forward this email on to any people or groups in Missouri that use or may use GIS in the future.
