eGIS Committee Meeting May 17th 2011 – new room

Hello everyone,

We have a very full agenda (May – 20110517.eGIS meeting notice and Agenda.pdf) for the upcoming eGIS Committee Meeting, so this will be a full 2 hours – 1:30 – 3:30 pm.  Note that the room has changed – it will be at the DPW 12th floor executive conference room.

A first item of business will be to vote on our slogan for our upcoming GIS Day (November 17th, 2011).  We have a number of entries already, but I would like everyone to think of new ideas!  Here are some initial ideas:

  • Improving LA County Government Services through GIS
  • GIS – Elevating the Efficiency of LA County Government
  • GIS – Driving the Efficiency of LA County Government
  • GIS – The fabric of LA County

Here is an initial draft of our “save the date” flyer: GIS day 2011 Save the date.pdf

Demonstrations

I look forward to two demonstrations:

  1. A demonstration from Mental Health on their DMH Mental Health Professional Shortage Area (MHPSA) Tool by Rachael Gannon and Matthew Wells
  2. A discussion of the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) from Drew Decker from the US Geological Survey.  I recently downloaded and loaded NHD data for LA County on the County data portal here: http://egis3.lacounty.gov/dataportal/?p=1972

Updates

We will also have updates from the Emergency Response GIS Committee, the land types and LMS project, the ESRI community map (click here for a recent post on viewing this), among others.

See you next Tuesday!
