Leadership of NSGIC

Associate Director Will Craig is the 2009-2010 President of NSGIC, the National States Geographic Information Council. NSGIC represents the 50 state GIS offices and councils, helping them coordinate activities in their states and advocating for state issues with the federal government. One high-priority issue for the states is more systematic collection of aerial photography across the nation. As a member of the Minnesota Governor's Council on Geographic Information, Craig constantly heard this as a high priority need for local governments across this state. In March 2010, he testified on this issue before a subcommittee of the House Agriculture Committee. The Federal Geographic Data Committee currently has a Request for Information out for response on the issues NSGIC has raised. The 2010 Annual NSGIC Conference was in Minneapolis.
