LUNCHEON SPEAKER: David Mockert, Director of State and Local Practice, GeoAnalytics, and former Wisconsin State Geographic Information Officer
TOPIC: "Making the Case for GIS Coordination" (PowerPoint presentation)

   Mr. Mockert is currently serving as the Director of State and Local Practice for GeoAnalytics, Inc. Before coming to GeoAnalytics, Dave was the Geographic Information Officer (GIO) for the State of Wisconsin. As the GIO, Dave provided coordination of statewide GIS activities, including the development of a statewide GIS Strategic Plan and initiation of a statewide coordination governance body.

   Mr. Mockert's presentation will focus on the importance of Geographic Information (GI) coordination. The talk will address three topic areas:

  1. Following initiatives outlined in the Statewide GIS Strategic Plan from January, 2007, explain efforts to develop a statewide GI governance body (a geographic information coordination council).
  2. The importance of coordination across jurisdictions at all levels as the world moves into the "New Web 2.0"
  3. How to truly leverage the collective investments in GIS in this new environment of readily available, massive amounts of information?
