Directions Magazine has been privileged to work with some great organizations. Welcome to another edition of the DirectionsMag/URISA Podcast Series! This year, URISA's Professional Education Committee is organizing a series of discussions on the topic of data organization and management from different perspectives. Whether we work with large occasional projects or daily transactions, organization is a key part of the hardware, software, people, data, network, and procedures of our geographic information systems.
In this edition, we chat with Sarah Klaas and Jeremiah Grief of the United States Geological Survey's elevation operations section and how they organize their projects and files.
