4 MissionMission The Mission The Alabama GIS Executive Council will foster the development of a spatial information capability for use by all jurisdictions and agencies to enhance decision making processes. To ensure that the capability is sustainable the Council will develop and implement a Strategic Plan with specific goals and objectives with measurable and actionable business plans. The Mission

5 VisionVision The Vision The State of Alabama will have a robust spatial information capability developed through a collaborative effort among the statewide geospatial community. This information will provide for effective operational, strategic and executive decision-making to optimize the health and resilience of communities, provide access to public information and enhance the safety, economy, environment and quality of life in Alabama.

8 Strategic issues (6 Identified Focus Areas) Governance – What mechanisms are important to developing and sustaining Alabamas geospatial capability? Framework Data – How can we better assess all current geospatial information available in the state and make recommendations to reduce inefficiency and redundancy in geospatial information collection? Data and Metadata Standards – How can we develop better policies related to statewide data standards, to reinforce importance of adherence to data standards, and to develop strategies and policies for implementing metadata standards?

9 Strategic issues (6 Identified Focus Areas) Automated Data Sharing – How can we create and distribute quality geospatial data and services across agencies at all levels within the State of Alabama? Communication- What strategies can be employed to create an effective communications plan that provides information to illustrate the value of collaborative development and access to geospatial information and services among stakeholder agencies Education/Outreach – What methods are needed to inform the public and policy makers in Alabama about the strategic benefits of geospatial technologies, and promote technical and non-technical education related to those technologies?

10 Current Status of the Strategic Plan 6 Strategic Issues have been identified –Up to six goals have been defined for each Focus Area Each Goal has identified Strategies, Measures, and Timelines for successful completion Example: Goal 1: Establish mechanism to measure the states progress with regard to fulfilling the objectives of the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) framework strategy Strategy: Inventory the data holdings suitable for use in the NSDI framework and posting this information. Measure: Record status of framework datas NDSI suitability in the state inventory holdings list. Timeline: All State agencies shall be completed by July 1, All county and local governments shall be completed by January 1, Strategic Issues have been identified –Up to six goals have been defined for each Focus Area Each Goal has identified Strategies, Measures, and Timelines for successful completion Example: Goal 1: Establish mechanism to measure the states progress with regard to fulfilling the objectives of the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) framework strategy Strategy: Inventory the data holdings suitable for use in the NSDI framework and posting this information.
