GIS Day 2006

This is the 8th year that Delaware County is celebrating the Geography Awareness Week and GIS Day in Delaware, Ohio. On November 13th 2006, over 400 students attended the GIS Day demonstrations and Map Gallery at Dempsey Middle school in Delaware, Ohio.

The Geography Awareness Week is sponsored by the National Geographic Society, the American Association of Geographers (AAG), Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc. (ESRI), the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA), and the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science (UCGIS). Since 1987, the National Geographic Society has sponsored Geography Awareness Week to promote geographic literacy in schools, communities, and organizations, with a focus on the education of children. This event was intended to promote the understanding of geography in schools around the world.

As a user of GIS technology Delaware County Auditor’s DALIS Project assisted the National Geographic Society, ESRI, AAG, URISA, and UCGIS in bringing this technology to Delaware County in the form of a 7 hour Open-House and a Map Gallery that illustrated how geography is part of our everyday lives. These sessions included a Map Gallery and Live demonstrations. The Map Gallery included various maps from Delaware County’s different Government Entities using GIS Technology. Live demos of functional applications of this technology in Delaware County as well as elsewhere in the nation were also demonstrated.

The Map Gallery participants included DALIS Project staff, Lux Phatak of the Delaware County General Health District, and Liz Mather with the Delaware County Soil and Water Conservation District. We would like to sincerely thank the Dempsey Middle school's teachers, administrators and specially Mr. Reg Hollinger.

DALIS Project's Web Site Redesigned

DALIS Project's web site was completely redesigned and launched in May of 2006. The new web site contains over 190 web pages and makes over 800 maps and 230 data layers available to the public.

County's Orthophoto and LiDAR Project awarded to Merrick & Company

County's 2006 Orthophoto and Light Detection And Ranging (LiDAR) project was awarded to Merrick and Company. This was the third time that Merrick was hired by the county. Merrick flew the county in April of 2006 and this time, the resolution of orthophotos for the entire county was at six inch pixel resolution as opposed to three varying resolutions of six inch, one foot and two feet in previous projects (1991, 1997 and 2002). Merrick is also providing the county with LiDAR datasets and 2 foot contours for the entire county. Both the orthophotos as well as LiDAR and contour datasets will be delivered to the county by February 2007.

DALIS Project's ArcIMS Application is Featured on Geography Network

DALIS Project's website is featured on the Geography Network. Geography Network is a global network of geographic information users and providers. It is managed by Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) and provides the infrastructure needed to support the sharing of geographic information among data providers, service providers, and users around the world.
