Perhaps the most important measure of success is patron use of MSDI data. Below we cite specialized uses and additional successes in the form of stewardship activities, reports, and the like.
- Administrative Boundaries staff members provide technical assistance, products, and recommendations for GIS data creation and management to local government GIS staff and other boundary data providers.
- Technical Assistance ensures that boundary source data is easier to generate and manage and that the data created is easily shared with others, including incorporation into the statewide MSDI Administrative Boundaries dataset. Ensuring that best practices are followed at the data source level is a cost saving measure for local as well as state government, minimizing the amount and type of cummulative data error rework later.
