MN.IT @ MNDNR (2015)
Sonia’s humor, bearing, knowledge, personal conduct, moral character, and leadership are indicative of a true professional. She has made many significant contributions to our geospatial community, including chairing the Consortium’s 2002 Conference, served on the consortium Board of Directors from 1999 to2002, and serving on the Governor’s Council on Geographic Information from 2000 to 2005. She was also one of the principal authors of “A Foundation for Coordinated GIS: Minnesota’s Spatial Data Infrastructure”. This study laid the groundwork for what is now the Minnesota Geospatial Commons. Sonia’s high standards, dedication to duty and teamwork have set the example for all GIS professionals. Sonia’s exemplary performance of duty is in keeping with the highest tradition of service and reflect distinct credit upon her, the GIS community, and the State of Minnesota.
