Why do a roll call?
The biennial roll call report is beneficial in informing the West Virginia geospatial community of other agencies’ mapping activities in the State.  It is important to know what other agencies are doing to minimize costly duplication efforts and to make government more efficient.  In addition, this published report will be useful for the future State GIS Strategic Plan and for informing the state executive and legislative branches  As you can see from the 2004 and 2006 published report, multiple agencies at all levels of government utilize geospatial technologies for their agencies’ mission.
