Baby Steps in Georgia and other Government GIS News

Mitch Adams of the Information Technology/Geographic Information System (IT/GIS) Department has been named Whitfield County [GA] Employee of the Month for November.

He maintains the GIS and recently voluneered to lead a timber harvest project.  He’s currently working toward a GIS Certificate through Penn State University. Artilces like this are a great way to introduce "what GIS people do" to students. Whitfield County is home to Dalton, GA a town of very friendly people; I ran an ultramarathon there last year.

At the heart of the plans for rebuilding Christchurch’s underground infrastructure is a one-stop interactive online map that adopts the principles of Spatial Data Infrastructure.

Pulling together data from utilitiies was challenging, but it sounds like the effort, which will also help in Canterbury, are re-energizing NSDI efforts countrywide.
