VCGI Applications and Services “Life Cycle Policies”

December 19, 2012

Steve Sharp, VCGI

VCGI is in the process of upgrading its GIT infrastructure, web site, and web services.  We anticipate that these upgrades will enhance the services available from VCGI.  In order to minimize disruption and clearly communicate our plans and intentions, VCGI has crafted a set of “life cycle policies” for specific web applications and services.  You can review them by visiting this web page.

We will keep you posted as we get closer to our “go live” date.

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns: steves at vcgi dot org or 882-3006.

VCGI is working with partners (member of the VT Enterprise GIS Consortium) to implement a robust suite of web services defined in the EGC’s Web Services Strategy.  We hope to have all of these online by the end of 2013.


Leveraging Python to Revolutionize the Production of the Vermont Town Highway Maps

December 4, 2012

 Sara Moulton, VTrans

To put next week’s webinar into context . . .  a reminder that a year ago I sent an email to the VGIS-Listserv asking for feedback about the Town Highway Maps.  The overwhelming response was that people wanted hardcopy versions of the maps.

As a result of this, we worked with the ESRI Holistic Testing Team who devised a new approach to the production of these maps.   A simplified version of the process is available online here
