Just a reminder that there will be no Spring Conference this year. The Kansas Chapter has decided to have an "annual" conference held in the fall. The conference will include many "mini-training sessions", which the Board is currently working on and planning at this time.
From Scott Ekberg, 911 Coordinating Council Liaison - As you are aware, the GIS sub-committee of the Coordinating Council has created regions for remediation work within the GIS Enhancement project. The sub-committee is also working on acquisition of statewide digital ortho imagery. The sub-committee feels that this imagery could be of benefit to the remediation process. With this in mind, the sub-committee has decided to re-order the progression of the gap analysis through the regions. Additionally, the regions are being renamed to simplify. The order will now be:
Region 1A - Now Region 1
Region 2A - Now Region 2
Region 2B - Now Region 3
Region 1B - Now Region 4
Region 3B - Now Region 5
Region 3A - Now Region 6
These changes are reflected on the www.Kansas911.org website.
Contact Scott with any questions or concerns.
