Webcasts of Governor's Council meetings

The Minnesota Governor's Council on Geographic Information has begun using webcasting technology to provide wider access to meetings of the full council. Using free Real Player software, view a meeting live on your own computer or view past meetings anytime from the archive. The first meeting recorded was November 28, 2007.

See http://www.gis.state.mn.us/webcast.html for more information on how to connect live or how to view the archive. Meeting dates and times are published on the Governor's Council homepage (http://www.gis.state.mn.us/) and on its Calendar – access the calendar via the left-hand navigation bar on any council webpage.

Be aware that technological problems are always a possibility and the council holds no responsibility for failed broadcasts or connections.
