Webinar: The Indiana Data Model

As previously noted on this blog, the state of Indiana has put considerable effort into creating tools and approaches that facilitate the sharing of geospatial data (See: IndianaMap).  As a way to share insights about this effort, the Central HAZUS Users Group is sponsoring a free webinar.  Here are the details:

What: “The Indiana Data Model.”  
When:  July 19, 2012
Time: 2:00 to 3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time (1:00 Central)

The Sell:  Geographic information is a critical component of the HAZUS work flow.  As the accuracy, currency, and access of that information improves, the HAZUS workflow outcome improves.  The Indiana GIS community has worked collaboratively over the last two decades to create an environment that promotes data sharing and open access to statewide geographic information resources.  This presentation looks at trends, technologies, projects, and possibilities that Indiana GIS brings to the HAZUS community in Indiana as well as across the nation.

Presenter InformationJim Sparks is the Geographic Information Officer for the State of Indiana, a Board Member of the Indiana Geographic Information Council, and a member of the National States Geographic Information Council.   Jim has nearly 30 years of experience in the geospatial technologies field and has worked in multiple levels of government as well as in the private sector.   He has played a pivotal role in making Indiana one of the leading models for data sharing in the nation.
