2001 Governor's GIS Commendations
The winners were:
Pollution Control Agency for its
development of the
Cities Metropolitan Area Groundwater Model. This project is a good
example of an organization that has formally created an on-going mechanism
to share data and expertise with others outside of their organization.
Further, they have made Metro Model resources, including individual
groundwater models, supporting datasets, assorted maps, and complete
documentation available in a usable and understandable format.
- Land Management Information Center for its pioneering development of the Minnesota GeoGateway. This is an easy-to-use “one stop” web search tool of the Minnesota Geographic Data Clearinghouse that has helped thousands of GIS users discover publicly available data about Minnesota from more than 50 different organizations, and for helping other organizations establish similar tools.
