Tony Van Der Wielen is a WLIA Board member but mostly he is responsible for coordinating the technological aspects of state and local redistricting, performing the required duties as the liaison to the Census Bureau, and managing daily GIS operations.
This past year he and his team were recognized at the Esri International User Conference for the work they have been doing . The Organization that he leads received a very distinguished award, the Special Achievement in GIS Award. He was not able to but members of his team were able to travel to San Diego to accept the award as seen here in the Photos. If you want to learn more about this award and the great work they continue to do you can go to this link.
Once again congratulations are in order for the Wisconsin LTSB!
