The Role of the GIS Coordinator in Local Government

As the value of geographic information systems becomes apparent for conducting town and village business, more and more local governments are establishing the position of GIS coordinator. The duties of this position and its place in the municipality's organizational structure vary widely, however. In this quick study I will examine: 1. The variety of implementations of the GIS coordinator role in various local governments. 2. The benefits that are achieved by creating an interdisciplinary GIS coordinator. 3. The process of identifying a person to be GIS coordinator. 4. How the role of the GIS coordinator can be tailored to provide the greatest benefits for the municipality.
