You don’t need to be a GIS expert or have GIS software to take advantage of the GIS data and web services put out by the NYS GIS Program Office (GPO).  Frank Winters from the NYS Office of Information Technology Services will start his presentation with a discussion of GIS data strategy including some examples of economic development activities that have happened in part because of quality GIS data that is publicly available.   He will then give you some background on the programs of the GPO and data resources available.  Frank will then provide some examples of using the GIS Web services (APIs) in traditional applications and will end with some news on nationwide partnerships that are developing with commercial map providers.

Speaker
