  • Outreach

  • Standards

  • Strategic Plan

Data Committee - Elevation

  • Assist in the development of partnerships that support data collection projects

    • Develop a work team to investigate funding opportunities including prospects for LCCMR grants

    • Populate the Statewide Elevation and Imagery Inventory (SEII) with information that links data collection projects

  • Support data services that host data resources and deliver them economically

    • Work with DNR and others to determine physical specifications required to serve very large elevation databases

    • Establish architecture to optimize data access

    • Establish governance policies that assign roles and responsibilities for data import, maintenance and access applying that architecture

Data Committee - Elevation

Deliver technical standards and information to partners to ensure coordinated data collection

Level I

  • Create and maintain a web site containing all critical documents, white papers, guidelines, policies and best practices to meet a statewide elevation data goal

  • Design and present a workshop session that addresses the most important questions of county and local government

  • Update brochure

    Level II

  • Develop a work team that will establish critical technical specifications for high resolution digital elevation data that meet FEMA requirements

  • Develop a work team that will study data collection costs and establish guidelines to guide budgets

  • Prepare a white paper and briefing paper for a legislative proposal for statewide high resolution digital elevation data coverage

Data Committee - Hydrography

Future Initiatives:

  • Implement plan for use and maintenance of the framework (EPA Grant)

    • Refine roles and responsibilities

    • Assess data access and maintenance needs of MN users

    • Encourage and implement data enhancements and updates

    • Foster development and sharing of applications and tools

    • Explore improved linkages between NHD and DNR 24K hydrography layers

  • Resolve FGDC Compliance issues for MN Watershed Boundaries

  • Develop wetlands mapping and maintenance strategy

  • Review and comment on FGDC Wetland Mapping Standard

Data Committee - LRM

  • The Land Records Modernization Committee will be reforming to explore next steps.

  • Potential activities include:

    • Complete Parcel Data Creation Guide begun by committee in 2005

    • Create publication on "Getting Parcel Data Funded" - idea from 2005

    • Explore how Minnesota cadastral data fits with national standards

    • Others - as defined by the interested and willing participants!

  • Will be recruiting at council meeting and through MN GIS/LIS Consortium. Will call initial meeting to determine interest, focus and potential goals in December or January.
