The working group is preparing a comprehensive business plan. The current standards and guidelines are being updated. A working statewide geodatabase model has been developed and populated since 2015. Efforts are underway for data refresh later in 2016. This effort involves working with local county assessors to obtain parcel (spatial and attribute) data for use in various state government applications. Requirements have been added to the State Records Board grants for communicating and accessing geospatial data from grant funded projects.
Low Distortion Projection (LDP) Project
New for 2016 is a project intended to provide GIS users more accurate section corner positions and to help land surveyors locate existing monuments prior to commencing field work. The information is not intended to replace established field procedures for boundary surveying. This project is spearheaded through the State Surveyors Office.
Future standards and guidelines are planned to be drafted on administrative boundaries, cadastral data exchange, and geodetic control data content.
