Doug Johnson and Robert Meier, City of Overland Park, were our guest speakers. They demonstrated how OP is using GIS on the Internet/intranet. OP uses ArcIMS software by ESRI to create the dynamic maps. ESRI has several products: ArcInfo, ArcView and ArcIMS.
To put the maps on a Web site, you need to install the ArcIMS connector piece on a Web server. It can be tailored to .cfm or .asp.
There is a metro ArcUsers group that meets once a month. For more information, contact Robert at 913-895-6203.
The PowerPoint presentation was sent via the listserv last week and will be posted on the MAGWeb site.
On a related note, MARC is working with several jurisdictions creating GIS applications for E-911.
Next Meeting: Web Content Management
Our next meeting will be held at 9 a.m. on Sept. 17 at the MARC offices. Rich Perkins from BV Solutions Group will be our guest speaker to talk about and demonstrate Web content management systems and issues.
If you have any ideas for future topics or guest speakers, please share them with Rich Lovett, KCMO, (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Susan Waters, Overland Park (email@example.com).
