Written by MAPPS   
04 July 2007
Reston, Virginia, July 3, 2007- MAPPS (www.mapps.org), the only national association comprised exclusively of private geospatial firms, has endorsed nine members for the National Geospatial Advisory Committee (NGAC).

The members of MAPPS that have been nominated are:

Chris Friel, Photo Science, Inc., St. Petersburg, FL
Kass Green, The Alta Vista Company, Berkeley, CA
Garth Lawrence, Intermap Technologies, Inc., Englewood, CO
John Matonich, Rowe, Inc., Flint, MI
David Maune, Dewberry, Fairfax, VA
Anne Miglarese, Fugro EarthData, Frederick, MD
Patrick Olson, AERO-METRIC, Sheboygan, WI
John Palatiello, MAPPS/John M. Palatiello & Associates, Inc., Reston, VA
G. Michael Ritchie, Jr., Photo Science, Inc., Lexington, KY

"These individuals are experienced leaders in the profession and would do an outstanding job of representing the private geospatial community, as well as our partners, clients and stakeholders. MAPPS was pleased to work with a number of other organizations to coordinate endorsements of several of these MAPPS members, including ASPRS, the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM), the Council on Federal Procurement of Architectural and Engineering Services (COFPAES), the National States Geographic Information Council (NSGIC) and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce", said Kurt Allen, MAPPS President.

The NGAC is being established by the Department of the Interior and the Federal Geographic Data Committee to provide advice and recommendations from partners and stakeholders on national geospatial programs.

MAPPS was formed in 1982 by a small group of U.S. photogrammetry companies as the Management Association for Private Photogrammetric Surveyors to represent the interests of private photogrammetric and aerial surveying firms. Since then, MAPPS has expanded in size and scope to become the only national association exclusively comprised of private firms in the spatial data and geographic information system field in the United States. Current MAPPS memberships spans the entire spectrum of the geospatial community, including Member Firms engaged in satellite and airborne remote sensing, surveying, photogrammetry, aerial photography, hydrography, aerial and satellite image processing, GPS, and GIS data collection and conversion services. MAPPS also includes Associate Members, which are companies that provide hardware, software, products and services to the geospatial profession in the United States and other firms from around the world.
