Level: Intermediate
Room: Trustees Hall, 2nd floor 

Integration of diverse large datasets, from publicly held aerial imagery, to census data, to parcels including their attributes and values, is becoming the new normal at both the local assessment level and at state and national levels.  Who is using your data and for what purposes?  How are other users linking their data to your data and integrating it within their own workflows?  Conversely, how is your organization improving data mining and integration of new data sources into your own workflow?  Come to this session and think about how data sharing can help society integrate, visualize, and understand spatial trends by working together.
