Strategic and Business Plan Development in Support of Enterprise GIS in Idaho
The Idaho GIS community now has a unified vision for its spatial data infrastructure with well-crafted Strategic and Business Plans. They also created an executive summary in the form of a presentation which can be tuned to a variety of audiences and a brochure for quick introduction to the ISDI initiative. In the course of the project, the statewide community developed closer ties and has a greater awareness of how they are connected and interdependent. An equally important result has been gaining the attention, understanding and support of key decision-makers that are vital to their success. They have also enlisted the partnership of related communities, such as surveyors and assessors.
