Kansas Geographic Information Systems Policy Board
The Kansas GIS Policy Board works to ensure a technological environment where GIS is recognized as an integral and indispensable tool for government and businesses to serve the information needs of citizens and customers. Kansas provides a broad contingency of GIS users with open access to complete and accurate framework data with appropriate guidelines to protect individual privacy and other sensitive information. The Kansas GIS Policy Board formed a cooperative relationship with the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC), by becoming a Cooperating Partner of the FGDC in support of the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI), resulting in the establishment of the
Kansas Data Access & Support Center, DASC
The Kansas GIS Policy Board is responsible for the development of standards, strategies, and policies that emphasize cooperation and coordination among agencies, organizations, and government entities in order to maximize the cost effectiveness of GIS by creating public and private partnerships throughout Kansas. The board, consisting of 23 members from state and local government agencies as well as public, private, and academic interests, provides review, coordination and recommendations for GIS programs and investments. Currently partnerships, within and among levels of government and private entities, provide the basis for assigning roles and responsibilities for the development and maintenance of data themes.
