Headquarters, Department of the Army, approved the establishment of the U.S. Army Geospatial Center (AGC) on February 20th. The AGC, formerly known as the Engineer Research and Development Center’s Topographic Engineering Center (TEC), will become a direct reporting center under the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The AGC is now designated as the Army Knowledge Center for Geospatial Expertise, and will serve as a key enabler of the Army Geospatial Enterprise – an integrated system of technologies and processes that delivers a geospatial Common Operational Picture to the Warfighter.

There’s no question that now that President Obama’s Stimulus plan is signed and in place many people are wondering where the $billions are going, who’s being put to work, what kind of projects are being funded, and perhaps most important, what kind of jobs are being created. Interesting to see that the State of Maryland has come forward with a web portal designed to inform the public about the stimulus activities and spending within the state of Maryland – well done! See http://statestat.maryland.gov/recovery.asp – Do you know of any other State web resources providing similar information? Please comment
Thos of you who have followed me over the past 10 years or so know that I love to share data pointers and GIS data resources. We currently have about 150 resource articles in our GIS Data spotlights and GIS Data articles sections on GISuser. Well now, finally, I’m pleased to have updated the State Nodes collection and created this 2009 State GIS Clearinghouse Directory. It still may require a little polishing and a few more resources but its likely THE best collection of State nodes you’ll find. Enjoy and bookmark this this resource for your collection – comments and tips for additions are welcome – check it out here
This is a VERY common landing page when conducting Google searches for State GIS data links! – No more Error 404 messages please!!
