Distributed GIS for Calgary Region Municipalities
Providing support for the Calgary Regional Partnerships’ Regional Metadata Guidelines
The Issue / Idea
How can municipalities in the Calgary Region effectively share and use GIS data?
In 2009, the Miistakis Institute began supporting the Calgary Regional Partnerships’ development of Regional Metadata Guidelines for GIS data management (Regional GIS or RGIS) to support planning within the Calgary region. The project’s objectives were to:
- Create mechanism for cataloguing, exchanging spatial data
- Support and facilitate other CRP initiatives
- Promote standards & best practices among CRP GIS Community
Throughout the project, Miistakis was involved in all technical meetings, developed a Metadata Best Practices Guide and developed a variety of other technical tools and templates that allow for data sharing between municipalities.
