South Carolina Publishes a Guide to Developing Data Access Policies
Adapted from NSGIC Blog
The Geospatial Administrators Association of South Carolina has published a guide to help local governments, as well as all other levels of government and the private sector, develop and implement GIS data access policies.
The purpose of the guide – A Process Framework for Developing Local Government Data Access Policies (PDF) – is to enlighten and inform decision makers about specific GIS data access policy decisions. The goal is not for all organizations to have the same policies, but for each organization to formulate policies using an informed and well thought out process.
To help facilitate understanding and discussion, the document is written from the perspective of a non-GIS practitioner.
