Hello – please find a draft agenda for next week’s eGIS Commitee meeting. I will be at CalGIS in Long Beach so Marianne Jeffers from DPW or Nick Franchino from DRP will lead the meeting.
Agenda: April – 2013_0416.eGIS meeting notice and Agenda
On the agenda:
- We will get an update from the GIS Data COmmitee, which has made good progress,
- Tom Weisenberger will demonstrate the editing capabilities in the Essentials product
- Carrie Wiley will provide an update on the Mobile Commitee
- ISD will provide an update and information about the planned virtualization of the main GIS Repository as well as the upcoming migration to ArcGIS Server 10.1 in our production environment.
The Los Angeles Regional GIS will serve as a forum for local and regional government agencies to collaborate and share information, ideas, strategies, best practices, and solutions and form partnerships with educational institutions, and State and Federal agencies regarding the implementation and management of GIS in Los Angeles County.
If you are part of a government agency at any level, educational institution, or other group supporting the public mission, you are encouraged to attend to make connections and help move our region’s GIS forward.
Our NEXT Meeting will be:
April 25th, 2013
For more information, see the Regional GIS Forum Page

The GIS classifications will be in front of the Board of Supervisors tomorrow. It was held from two weeks ago due to unrelated issues, so let’s hope it passes tomorrow. Unfortunately that does not give me or the CEO enough time to prepare to discuss the classifications tomorrow, so we will need to postpone until next month’s meeting.
Discussion items for tomorrow
Here are the documents from the meeting, including the eGIS Repository data list that I passed out (and was super small to read).
And last but not least – the draft of the Los Angeles 2nd Geospatial Summit (April 30th). Hope folks can attend that.
LA County Canvas
I hope everyone is having a good 2012 so far. Our standard committee meeting is coming up next Tuesday, so I wanted to pass along the agenda: February – 2012_0221.eGIS meeting notice and Agenda.pdf
We have some good news on LAR-IAC 3 with delivery and loading proceeding rapidly. I sent out an email last week regarding the successful load of the South Bay into our eGIS Repository, and the new cache with that data will be complete today!
We have also completed the LA County Canvas, which is a valuable new addition to the County map family!
I also wanted to attach the LA County GIS Strategic Plan developed in 2009 for review – we’ve got a lot of things done, which is great – but as things have changed it is definitely time to review and update!
Los Angeles County Enterprise GIS Strategic Plan (pdf file)
We’ll have some other tips and tricks to show as well. See you Tuesday!
I wanted to pass this along. It’s a good opportunity for the GIS and Surveyor communities to talk shop.
The meeting is Thursday, February 2nd at 6 PM.

I’m looking forward to Wendy Harn’s demonstration of the Sheriff’s new Crime Mapping and Analysis site which includes information from both LASD and LAPD (it’s an internal application). I have attached a screenshot to the right.
Importantly, there are three draft GIS policies that I would like everyone to review and comment on. These policies follow directions that most County departments are already moving, but formalizing them and gaining feedback to resolve any questions is critical.
Here they are: Technology Focus Area – Recommended Enterprise GIS Policies
One of them relates to ESRI software – I’ll be bringing copies of the most recent pricing list related to the County’s Master Purchase Agreement with ESRI – don’t forget to leverage that.
And for more interest, I’ve completed a test of the new ESRI Geocoding engine that was released with version 10. The current, LA County developed rules seem to do a better job at geocoding (98.6% rate vs. 94.3% rate). Download the full results: Comparison of LA County 931 geocoder and ESRI v10 geocoder.
Note – I’m fairly familiar with the test data – it is pretty dirty so many of the 1.4% rejects are caused by bad address data so don’t blame the geocoders.
ESRI is interested in working with us to identify where the differences are, and how they can increase their accuracy (as are we of courese).
Have a great weekend everyone (it’s a holiday). See you Tuesday!
Sorry for the late notice, but I look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow (Tuesday the 20th of December) at our normally scheduled eGIS Committee Meeting.
Here is the agenda: December 2011 – eGIS meeting notice and Agenda (pdf file)
We’ll recap and go over GIS Day, which was (once again) a great success! I have copies of the “GIS Day Proclamation” scrolls for GIS Day committee members – here’s a link to the image, and I have also have signed copies of the pictures from the group that received them!
We’ll also give an update on the Thomas to TIGER conversion project, and I’ll focus a bit of time on the Location Management System, since that is becoming more and more used.
See you there!
