MAPPS will hold an interest meeting of private sector firms Sep. 12 in Florida to discuss the formation of a state chapter. The meeting will be held at the offices of RIEGL USA in Orlando. Attendees will hear what is important to MAPPS members and private sector firms in Florida.

MAPPS has successfully launched state chapters in Pennsylvania, Colorado, Georgia and Maryland. This has given the private geospatial community and MAPPS member firms a stronger voice in their respective states.

MAPPS announced that two guest speakers will speak at the event: Gene Schiller, Emeritus official of the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD), former deputy executive director and a member of the National Geospatial Advisory Committee (NGAC), and Dr. Steve Dicks, Information Technology Bureau chief and former GIO of SWFWMD. They will discuss the status of water management districts, state funding, and the impact on contracting programs for mapping and geospatial data services.
