Geospatial data bill advances

The geospatial data clearinghouse bill passed the Arizona House Environmental Committee this morning and is expected to go to the full House on Friday (or even earlier). It previously passed the Senate.

Among it's provisions, SB1318 will effectively "Establish a clearinghouse of information and a central repository for geospatial data and statewide geographic information system services" in part by removing restrictions on sharing of state data. It also formalizes the Arizona Geographic Information Council.
