Two issues are coming before the state public records commission related to consultant Whitaker’s win in a battle to gain access Greenwhich, CT’s GIS data. There are continuing questions about whether he can get updates and data on infrastructure considered a security risk, but those are not at issue right now.

Other questions are making it to the state public records commission. First, Whitaker maintains that a state Freedom of Information request was not replied to in timely manner, or completely. A hearing officer agreed. Should the commission agree, that could result in First Selectman Jim Lash facing a $100 fine. Lash denies any wrongdoing.

Second, the hearing officers maintains that the fees for duplication of the GIS data ($70 for one CD to $100 for a set of three CD’s) should be reduced as they do not reflect the true cost.

Of the 34 respondents, 44% found the events too expensive, 32% didn’t find enough new material, 9% complained of too much marketing, 6% found it didn’t meet their needs, while another 6% found them too long. Just 3% pointed to unprepared speakers.

I saw Al Gore’s movie over the weekend, An Inconvenient Truth, and enjoyed it immensely. Regardless of your political leanings, most readers of this blog will enjoy it for its cool maps and use of geospatial technologies to analyze and portray the points he’s making.  The movie description makes it sound a little boring, but even my ten-year-old found it fascinating.  See it if you can!

This from an e-mail from a reader:

Can you please tell me where in the world is the deepest gorge in the world. I am looking for the correct answerer to this question. Some web sites say that it is Tibet and others say in North America. If you can not answerer maybe you can point me in the right directions. I am looking for hard data.

Anyone?
