From the way I understand it, the state agencies are divided up into their own little organizations. From what I was told a while back, and i might have this wrong or confused, but the DNR, some dept. of agriculture and some other dept. all have money for satellite imagery and even though they use the same imagery or that they could share the information, they dont. does this sound familiar to anyone?
Of course I cant remember the 3 agencies now when i am writing about it, but there were 3 that i remember that: if they shared their resources, they would be able to afford the updated imagery and save lots of state funded dollars. I want to say it was brought up on the news about 5 years ago.
Anyone, sound familiar???
