St. Charles Parish Debates What to Put in Web Maps
From NOLA.com (The Times-Picayune) comes word that St. Charles Parish is panning to put its $3 million, 4 years in the making GIS online in November. The big challenges now is to determine how much information to make available.
What’s public information that’s not available?
- the application form for home-based businesses which contains personal information, such as work and cell phone numbers.
- precise locations of water and sewer lines, which could be trouble “in the wrong hands”
Other jurisdictions that have put data online (and removed it) are profiled, too.
