ABSTRACT: This panel will discuss best practices and lessons learned from a combined total of 70 years of GIS experience. We represent a variety of sizes of municipal government. No matter how great the technology, how cool the application, it all depends on the people. How do we expand use of geospatial technology? How do we use geospatial tools to encourage citizen participation? Are there any best practices for various levels of government? Which walls do you keep running into? These and other questions will be covered during this panel discussion. We look forward to active participation from the audience.
