The Eastern Missouri Collaborative Review and Maintenance of Tier 1 and Locally Critical Structures demonstrated the value of cultured geospatial data partnerships across local, state and federal entities. The project provided the impetus to creating or enhancing numerous partnerships between all three levels of government, most significantly at the regional and local level. In a region that has historically had limited geospatial data cooperation new sharing agreements were actualized and a remarkable sense of “team” achieved. One of the deliverables has not yet to be completed – a structures layer to the Boonslick RPC for review and future enhancements - but is being addressed.
