There was no main topic for discussion at this meeting, as this was the first meeting since the GIS Manager had left the laboratory. Therefore, there was much discussion around the GIS. Josh Kenney expressed the value of GIS in that it must be moved forward. He mentioned that the utility maps are very important, and updating this data is essential.
Kevin has been working on SURF locations, SSP Phase 4, and FIMS data.
Sabina has been working on metrics, VFA, and other related data.
Albert has been spending time repairing old links and updating the FESS website.
Josh Kenney expressed concern on who is taking over control of software such as Leica. Also, who manages and takes care of the BlueBeam software, which is used by Engineering.
Josh Juneau has been working on development of the SSP Phase 4 and Engineering Task Review applications. Josh is working on migrating the GIS environment over to the Windows 2016 based ArcGIS 10.7 infrastructure, and resolving requests from users. Also working on the FAMIS 12c Forms and Reports migration, and at this time a couple of more testers have been added (Maredith and Marcel).
