MEGUG Utilities Meeting
By Dan Walters, Maine GIS Users Group
The Maine GIS Users Group (MEGUG) is working with several special interest groups to plan a meeting of Maine utilities in January. We hope to get a variety of utilities types to participate including communications, cable TV, water, sewer, gas and electric. The date has not been picked yet, but the meeting will most likely be held in the Bangor area.A round table-type session to allow utilities to share and discuss topics common to utilities has been suggested. Topics might also include planning, requests for data, road databases, Dig-Safe, GIS platforms, applications specific to utilities, mobile GIS use of public data, routing, network analysis, system restoration, land base and data collection.
If this area of discussion interests you, please consider volunteering to make a presentation or suggesting ideas for topics. Send your suggestions to Aimee Dubois at ADubois@ci.scarborough.me.us .
