On the agenda:

The State’s GIS Users Group, while focused on GIS at the state level, is open to anyone interested in their work. Christina Boggs from the California State Department of Water Resources passed this along, and this is an opportunity to get involved with State GIS folks.
“Before I get into the details, I wanted to announce some happy news. Future meetings are going to be open to Federal, Local, Education and other awesome people. The focus is still going to be on topics and items that pertain to California State government but we are implementing an open door policy for this group.”
From the last meeting:
Here are the meeting notes, including links to download the powerpoints of the presentation pieces – download here
During the meeting there were a couple of quick suggestions that I started:
- Contact list to facilitate community networking, thereby giving people the ability to find expertise from other departments - here is the link to add your contact information, after you post yours the list will be visible to you
- Location to share projects and pieces of work – I created a GitHub organization for us to put snippets of code or other open-source projects for sharing – become a member here https://github.com/CaliforniaStateGISUserGroup (it’s empty, let’s fill it!)
Here is another great opportunity to see what is going on in the County:
