2005 MetroGIS Annual Report Available
By Randall Johnson, MetroGIS Staff Coordinator

MetroGIS's 2005 Annual Report and an accompanying 10-page promotional brochure are available for downloading at On behalf of MetroGIS's leadership, I encourage you to read about our 2005 accomplishments and our activities planned for 2006.

Through MetroGIS's efforts and accomplishments, participating organizations are obtaining better geospatial data, in less time, and less expensively than otherwise possible; data that are critical to achieving its core business functions. Please refer to the "benefits widely shared" section of the enclosed brochure (page 7) for a summary of significant benefits to several stakeholders. These efforts are helping to improve cooperation among government entities, as well as organizational effectiveness by leveraging resources.

More information about MetroGIS, its accomplishments, and benefits to the region is available at If you have any questions or comments about the annual report or about MetroGIS in general, please contact Randy Johnson at or at 651-602-1638.
