The Newsletter for the Minnesota GIS/LIS Consortium
The MN GIS/LIS Newsletter announces Consortium news and provides educational articles that highlight interesting GIS projects in or impacting Minnesota. Its primary audience is GIS professionals in Minnesota and nearby areas, and it is published electronically three times a year. Articles are grouped into eleven sections: Consortium news, state government, regional government, local government, federal government, higher education, K-12 education, private sector, non-profits, people, and other places. Navigation is facilitated by a left sidebar containing short titles of the articles. Individual articles can be viewed on the website, and the entire issue can be downloaded in PDF format.
The Consortium welcomes submission of articles highlighting GIS/LIS applications and activities of state, regional, or local significance. Articles are typically 2 to 5 paragraphs, preferably submitted in Word format, and include links to related websites and contacts for more information. Graphics are encouraged and should be submitted as separate files, preferably in JPEG format. For more complete guidance, see How to Write an Article for Mn GIS/LIS News.
To submit an article, send it before the deadlines listed below to email@example.com, or to: GIS/LIS News, 1000 Westgate Drive, Suite 252, St. Paul, MN 55114.
The newsletter editorial group reviews articles received by the deadline. If substantial edits or revision are needed, articles will be returned to the authors for specified changes; the article will still be published if those changes are made promptly. The editorial group may do minor edits. The editorial group has the final decision whether to accept a submitted article. Any submission the Consortium deems to be a solicitation will not be accepted; however, educational articles from the private sector will be considered if they spotlight a successful customer implementation in Minnesota.
