Immersive GIS to engage citizens like never before
California state government is gearing up for a renaissance of geospatial information systems--one in which citizens can see and touch the data relevant to critical questions such as where are they going to live and where are their kids going to go to school, while business owners will be able to interact with the data that will guide them in determining whether or not to locate their business in California.
For the last several months, California has been actively laying the ground work for a variety of useful applications that represent spatially data collected by the state. Earlier this month, the state's chief information officer, Teri Takai, announced the members of a GIS task force which is charged with coming up with a strategic plan for the statewide coordination of geospatial data in 90 days. The task force has already met four times and presented its initial recommendations to the governor on August 15th.
