Emergency Management (2004 – 2006)
  • Created in 2004, The Emergency Management Task Force (EMTF) to identify the need and scope of a statewide emergency management geospatial strategy. From February 2005 through March 2006, a diverse group of Wisconsin GIS and emergency management professionals identified, researched, and discussed a range of issues and barriers related to the successful application of geospatial technologies to support emergency management activities in Wisconsin. The EMTF final report identified 15 key recommendations categorized into four areas: coordination, policies, infrastructure, and education.

Wisconsin Coordinate Systems (2003 – 2006)
  • The WCS Task Force was formed by the State Cartographer’s Office in early 2004. The intent in forming the TF was to explore concerns raised by a number of GIS users over apparent errors and inconsistencies in data conversions to and from the Wisconsin County Coordinate System (WCCS). The SCO asked a variety of individuals representing the governmental, academic, and private sectors to serve on the Task Force.
