Join us on October 27, 2021 for the Indiana Government Geospatial Coordinator’s Forum. This annual event takes place from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm eastern at The Pyramids at College Park, Building #3 (3500 DePauw Blvd, Indianapolis). We will be meeting in the lower level, Conference Room A&B.

 

Thank You 2021 Forum Sponsors!

The forum provides a unique opportunity for knowledge sharing specifically designed for government geospatial professionals or individuals in other sectors who serve as the primary geospatial service provider for an Indiana government entity.

The 2021 Forum begins with updates about data development projects and collaboration efforts in the state from the State Geographic Information Office and the Indiana Geographic Information Council. The agenda then turns to an important topic for all government entities, boundaries. Boundaries support a wide range of needs ranging from E-911 response to property management to voting and much, much more. We will have a highly interactive discussion about how boundaries are developed, maintained and shared in Indiana. We will explore which boundaries are the highest priority to collect, how are they used and how accurate they need to be. If you use boundaries in your organization, you want to be part of this conversation!

Following our lunch break we will separate into two groups. One will discuss issues of interest to county government and the other will focus on cities and towns. This is your opportunity to learn from and collaborate with your peers from across the state about opportunities and best practices you can apply in your community.

While we currently are planning an in-person event, we care about the health and safety of the participants. Therefore, at a minimum, we will follow Indiana State Department of Health and Hamilton County Health Department guidelines. The measures will be in place depending on the color of Hamilton County on the County Metrics Advisory Level map found at https://www.coronavirus.in.gov/2393.htm:

  • Blue: social distancing and masks optional
