We have just published our Fiscal Year 2012 (July 2011 to June 2012) annual report. The report includes an assessment of progress relative to our 2010-13 Strategic Plan, as well as a list of high-priority projects for 2012-13 identified in our annual business planning process.
Some highlights of our year:
- We launched a statewide orthophotography business planning project under an FGDC (Federal Geographic Data Committee) grant.
- We continued our efforts on our pilot project for Public land Survey System (PLSS) data.
- We are involved with several statewide data integration projects, including: a virtual parcel data viewer that integrates county-level parcel map services; efforts to update statewide land cover data; development of a midscale cartographic database; work on an inventory and repository of LiDAR data for the state; and updates to ControlFinder and PLSSFinder.
- We created a new publication format — the “SCO technical paper series” — and published three of these new publications.
We welcome any feedback you may have on the report, or our activities planned for the current year. Please e-mail your comments to Howard Veregin, or give me a call at (608) 262-6852.
