State Agency GIS Collaborative
The group facilitates communication and collaboration for Minnesota state agency employees interested in geospatial topics and technology, including learning, networking opportunities, and technical resources.
It also advises MnGeo on ways to support and improve the operations and
management of geospatial technology within state government. Input from the
collaborative helps MnGeo understand state agency needs, focus on priorities, and
allocate resources toward priority efforts.
In addition to the main planning committee that coordinates collaboration across agencies, the following workgroups tackle specific areas:
- GIS Bytes: Promotes knowledge sharing, collaboration and networking
- Training: Updates individual skills and communicates about training opportunities. Published a Geospatial Training Survey Summary in 2018.
- Data, Application, Code Sharing: Reduces redundancy and increases efficiency by sharing data, applications, and code
- Communications: Coordinates the collaborative’s communications and meetings
