And the Winner is...

At the just concluded MN GIS/LIS Conference for 2013, Minnesota Chief Geospatial Information Officer Dan Ross announced the prestigious Minnesota Governor's Geospatial Commendation Award was being awarded to the City of St. Paul for creation and release of the Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) product GeoMOOSE. As such, GeoMOOSE now joins one of the world's most heavily used geospatial programs - Mapserver  - as one of only two programs so honored with this distinction. Interestingly, as previously mentioned on this blog, GeoMOOSE holds great potential for use by the Emergency Services Sector as a Common Operating Picture (COP).  More below:

Comments: Very cool!  Congratulations go out to the original three members of the GeoMOOSE project team - Bob Basques, Jim Klassen, and Dan Little for the vision, drive, and  smarts that have made GeoMOOSE possible.
