County Halts Sale of Spatial Data on Security Grounds

FCW.com reports on Santa Clara's efforts to temporarily halt the commercial sale of GIS data for security concerns. http://www.fcw.com/article102637-05-07-07-Print The town of Greenwich, Connecticut tried to prevent the release of its GIS data on similar grounds, but its position was rejected by the Connecticut Supreme Court. Spatial technology companies that use local GIS data should follow this, and related cases, closely, as local counties and municipalities surely will.
