More than 50 posters and 75 map books were prepared for the event.

DigitalGlobe, provider of the high resolution commercial satellite imagery and geospatial information products, announced that the company's QuickBird satellite imagery was used by the Arkansas Geographic Information Office (AGIO) in order to successfully prepare for the Clinton Presidential Library opening recently. The AGIO coordinated with numerous city, county, state and federal agencies to plan for the library opening.

The library's grand opening ceremony on November 18 was attended by President Bush, as well as former Presidents Clinton, Carter and George H.W. Bush. Musical artists U2 and Aretha Franklin were also in attendance.

In addition to providing on-site support during the event in the local and state operation centers, the AGIO provided over 50 posters and 75 map books to prepare for the event. In total, over 45 unique geospatial datasets were generated and documented.

Pulaski County, where the library is located, has had a very active GIS program since the mid- 1990s. However, the existing land base was out of date and in need of updates to effectively support security and planning for the event. According to David Nale, senior vice president of commercial markets at DigitalGlobe, "We were originally contacted by the AGIO roughly 30 days before the event. During those next 30 days we were able to task the satellite and capture new imagery as well as utilize the DigitalGlobe library of images, to ultimately deliver more than 700-square miles of image data."
