Tennessee GIS Stakeholder Regional Forum Registration

The Tennessee Geographic Information Council and the State, Office for Information Resources, GIS Services (OIR- GIS) invite you to take part in the state’s development of a business plan for statewide enhanced elevation data. For some background on this effort, see: gis.tn.gov [Project Spotlight: Statewide LiDAR/Elevation Business Plan Development.]

In the last two weeks of August, there will be five regional stakeholder forums to solicit public input on the needs for enhanced elevation data around the state. Base mapping has high value in Tennessee and the goal of this planning process is to examine the business case for developing and distributing current, high resolution elevation data to support applications such as flood plain management, land development, and a multitude of other activities that require better terrain data than is available currently through USGS or other sources. The forums will include an educational component on the most efficient and cost effective methods for developing enhanced elevation data, including LiDAR technology. As someone who uses elevation data, or a decision maker who depends on current and accurate information, your input on the need and uses for enhanced elevation data will help us determine the best approach to move forward.

11:15 – 11:45 – Jessica Swinney
Securing Grants Presentation – There are millions of dollars in grants that can be secured. The easiest way to secure a grant? Ask. If you don’t ask you will never get it. Planning is key to grant writing. You don’t have to be a “grant writer” to be able to secure grants. With a little planning and a few words anyone can write a grant. Wise County has been fortunate to secure a few dollars in funding over the past several years. Jessica will share some of her thoughts on securing grants in these tough economic times.

11:45 – 12:00 Networking Break- Time to allow members to have informal discussions with others.

12:30 – 1:00 Fall Eastern Regional TNGIC Conference Discussion – David Light

The original plans were for the Knoxville Area group(s) to host and lead the planning for the conference.  However, during the last TNGIC board meeting, we were informed that the Knoxville area group(s) would not be able to devote the time required to lead the conference.  Consequently, this places the East Tennessee Regional Fall TNGIC Conference at risk of being cancelled unless we can quickly pull together resources for planning and hosting the conference.
We plan to discuss the possibility of the NETGIS group attempting to plan the East Tennessee Regional Fall TNGIC Conference at our next NETGIS meeting planned for Friday August 27th.  Up for discussion will be the location of the conference, speakers/presenters, seeking volunteers to help plan the event, etc.  We will also discuss the possibility of canceling the event.
If you have ideas or suggestions for the conference discussion, please reply to this note and we will try to include them in the discussion.

1:00 – 1:15 Networking Break- Time to allow members to have informal discussions with others.
