The GIS Consortium (GISC) was formed in 1999 as a means for local governments to collaborate and share costs to create innovative GIS solutions to everyday challenges. Collaborative models like that of the Consortium are becoming more and more attractive given the current economic climate. Tom Thomey founder of MGP and architect behind the formation of the GIS Consortium will be discussing its history, evolution and the benefits that occur when local governments collaborate to create strategic public-private partnerships.
