Dubai Fridge Magnets and other Government GIS News

Dubai is rolling out a new addressing plan using the MGRS. The next phase is to get the 10 digit alphanumerics distributed. How? Fridge magnets.

The addresses will be handed out as fridge magnets for private residences, as stickers to shops and as tabletop displays for hotels, Mr Malek said.

The app is in preparation and in time buildings may have the addresses in plaques on them.

NOAA CIO Joe Klimavicz, speaking at the Federal Cloud Computing Summit on Dec. 17 in Washington, D.C., said the agency is looking to release a request for information in January to solicit industry feedback for how the agency might turn data that it doesn’t currently release to the public into value-added products.

Clanton, AL is looking at GIS:

Town Councilman Glenn Littleton is helping the town implement QGIS, a free and open source desktop GIS application, which could allow the town to map street lights, the sewer system, fire hydrants, water valves, water meters and more.

He found it had a learning curve, but YouTube taught him what he needed to know.
