Governor's Geospatial Challenge: Meeting 9/21/17





Governor Kitzhaber’s Challenge to the Geospatial Community
9/21 Meeting Update: Webinar option

We invite you to participate in this meeting in person, in the Metro Council Chamber, or online, as a webinar. Please see directions below.

At the GIS in Action conference a few months ago, Governor Kitzhaber issued a challenge to the geospatial community.  The Governor’s Challenge was to use geospatial data and technology to improve support services for early childhood trauma, which has a profound and life-long impact on people’s health. The geospatial community can help the providers and funders of child welfare and education programs solve problems and provide services more effectively.  Much of the data needed to do this is geospatial data.

The leadership of Oregon URISA has been discussing how to address this Challenge in a way that will take full advantage of the great resources and ideas in the geospatial community.  In a working session at GIS in Action, following the Governor’s keynote presentation, a small group of interested individuals discussed the need for more folks to get involved.

The Oregon URISA Board will host a meeting, details and agenda below, to determine ways to address the Governor’s Challenge. Governor Kitzhaber will join us for this discussion and problem solving if his schedule permits.

If you are interested in supporting or assisting with this project, please join us at the kickoff meeting.
