Mississippi Digital Earth Model Standards

To qualify as Mississippi Digital Earth Model (MDEM) data, information must meet minimum standards. State agency staffs worked with the Policy Advisory Committee (PAC) and the Technical Users Group (TUG) to draft standards for each of the seven framework layers. These standards were presented to the Mississippi Coordinating Council for Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems (Council), which adopted them at its meeting of December 2, 2004.
