The mission of the Archiving Implementation Workgroup of the Minnesota Geospatial Advisory Council is to define policies, best practices and procedures for archiving geospatial data in Minnesota. It builds on the work of the Archiving Workgroup, active in 2019.
Your Input Needed!
Please contribute to the Archiving Historical Geospatial Data Survey - help us make the case for archiving geospatial data in Minnesota!
The survey will take approximately five minutes to complete. Your input will help to shape conversation and planning as we work toward proposing a geospatial archive for Minnesota. We appreciate your time and feedback.

The survey closed December 21, 2018.
