Please note that this boundary is not yet effective – this is for reference and planning purposes only until it takes effect on October 27th, 2011.
The Board of Supervisors adopted a set of new Supervisorial Districts yesterday (September 27, 2011). I have loaded this data into the eGIS Repository, and added a link to the data as well as made the shapefile(s) available for download in the LA County GIS Data Portal.
The process to create the districts was a long and interesting one, and the LA County redistricting website: http://redistricting.lacounty.gov/ will give you more information than you would ever need.
Note that there may be challenges to these boundaries in court, but they are the officially adopted boundaries (at this time).
We’re getting farther along with the current LAR-IAC Project and really would like to share where we are. The oblique imagery has been loaded into Pictometry Online (POL) and is being used by current L3 participants. The ortho imagery is being processed by Sanborn and everything is being QC’d by Dewberry & Davis. This meeting is to provide status reports on the various products and solicit feedback.
LAR-IAC3 Briefing Meeting – September 29, 2011
Please take public transportation or carpool if possible.
Send an e-mail if you need parking information (click here); I can only validate 5-6 people for parking, so please e-mail me back as soon as possible…I’m sorry about that, but tough budget times these days.
GoToMeeting Information (If you can’t make it in person):
1. Please join my meeting, Thursday, September 29, 2011 at 9:30 AM Pacific Daylight Time.
2. Join the conference call:
The City of Calabasas just completed an annexation into the Unincorporated County. The eGIS team has just completed updating the map caches to reflect this change.
At the same time this gave me the opportunity to make a number of other changes that reflect improved cartography.
These changes affect two map caches:
Changes fall under the following areas:
Let me know if you have any questions/comments. I am always looking to improve the quality of the maps we produce
The agenda for today’s meeting is attached.
I forgot to send out the reminder for tomorrows meeting before I left for vacation. I will send out the agenda tomorrow morning (I’m on my way home now.) See you tomorrow.
After a bit of work, ESRI has loaded a lot of the County’s data into the Community Basemap (AKA the World Topographic Map). This includes many layers from the County’s GIS data repository, and will be the most accurate online map available free to the public for areas that include the entire County. We will be working with ESRI to determine the best way(s) to keep the information up to date.
It’s a rich source of information, and it can be used and embedded in many applications and locations.
You will need to zoom in a bit to see the County data, which appears at more detail. You will know it when the buildings turn on.
I wanted to let everyone know that Pictometry has implemented the LAR-IAC 3 oblique imagery (flown in 2011) in Pictometry Online (POL) – available at http://pol.pictometry.com.
Along with this change, we are updating the password for the generic LARIAC user account. If you have been using the generic password, contact me and I will provide the new password depending upon your LAR-IAC 3 participant status.
CSUN has placed a number of students at the County over the past year, so I thought I would pass along the information about their program ..
Graduate Credit Certificate in Geographical Information Science and Technology (GIST)
Classes begin Spring 2012
CSUN’s 18-unit graduate certificate program will equip college graduates with at least one year of professional experience in GIST or a related field with cutting-edge skills and capabilities needed for success in public agencies and the private sector. The program also provides an excellent opportunity for current GIST professionals to upgrade their skills in a rapidly changing field.
Students will acquire a comprehensive understanding of the theoretical foundations of GIST and gain competence with current GIST methods and technologies. Participants also will appreciate the critical role that GIST plays in the fields of urban planning, civil engineering and environmental sciences, especially related to developing sustainable cities and infrastuctures.
