Alan will be sending out an e-mail newsletter on Monday on Iowa GIS Activities. Bob noted that he is putting ArcExplorer on the sheriff’s site and it is very popular in Black Hawk County. Alan said he has about 40 people in the state that are interested in ArcEplorer applications. Bob said he would like to see IGIC expanding on the DNR color infrared imagery project.
