AATA Solomon Tisdale Memorial Golf Tournament

Each year at the AATA conference, G-Squared hosts the Solomon Tisdale Memorial Golf Tournament. This has been a standing tradition at the AATA for a number of years now.

The New Booth

The unveiling of the new booth was a huge success. This particular booth was geared more towards the golfers. We developed our new booth panels using our most recent 3 inch resolution imagery of Shelby County. The Golf course featured is the Robert Trent Jones Ross Bridge course. We even added some photos of a few holes and some interesting facts about each one.

Overview of the 2017 MAPPS and NSPS Federal Programs Conference

G-Squared is a part of a lobbying group known as MAPPS. Every year this group will hold one of its conferences in Washington D.C. to propose changes to members of congress. Sadly, the geospatial community often goes un-noticed in many facets of society. This group has changed this by giving our industry more of a presence on the Hill. The main points we touched on this year were; Private Sector Utilization, FEMA, NFIP & Flood Map Reform, and The Role of Geospatial Data in Building America’s Infrastructure. These key points are explained further below.

  • Private Sector Utilization – The geospatial community is an industry in which the federal government can use for a wide range of purposes. With the rapid growth of technology, that range is becoming wider every day. One of the reasons MAPPS and the NSPS was in Washington was to show support and promote The Freedom From Government Competition Act (FFGCA). This act was proposed by Representative John Duncan (TN) and Senator John Thune.
  • FEMA, NFIP & Flood Map ReformThis point was to show the importance of the 3DEP program. The NFIP is $24 Billion dollars in debt. The average age of elevation data from the USGS is on average 35 years. With more accurate elevation data, flood insurance premiums will inevitably drop due to having current data to work off of.
  • The Role of Geospatial Data in Building America’s Infrastructure – The surveying and geospatial industry has played a key role in infrastructure. MAPPS was there to make congress aware of how important an infrastructure bill would be to the growth of America.

G-Squared produces high quality maps while keeping our clients informed. We take the necessary steps to stay current with changes in the industry and always have a desire to know more. If you have any questions regarding the content of this site, give me a call or send an email to zgalyen@gsqmap.com
