Subscribe to the GIS Listserv

The GISUSERS Listserv list provides a method for efficient communication between Michigan GIS users of all skill and education levels. Both public and private sectors of the GIS community are encouraged to participate.

State of Michigan listservs have been converted to a new system called GovDelivery and the old listserv will be turned off. Please note the from address is now dtmb@govsubscriptions.michigan.gov.

One of the most significant changes is the inability to 'reply all' with the new system.

How to post to the ListServ

To post to the list, send an email to GIS_users@michigan.gov and the content will be transferred to the GovDelivery system for delivery to all list members. We have 4 staff monitoring this address, 8-5, M-F. You can expect a fairly prompt turnaround during this time. Night, weekend, and holiday submittals will be posted next business day.

If you would like a response directly from list members, please include contact information in your email submittal.

Questions, comments, etc. should be sent to GIS_users@michigan.gov

Examples of possible items suitable for submission are listed below:

Telling others about an interesting GIS related magazine article or web site you think others should be aware of. GIS related classes or seminars you have attended and found to be valuable or found to be not so helpful. GIS data standards are also a good topic for discussion.

Note: Let's refrain from flaming. Criticism of organizations, people or products should be constructive in nature.

Maybe you have written a GIS related script that's been a big time saver and you are willing to share it with others, you are working on an interesting project that you feel others might be interested in hearing about, or perhaps you are working on a project and want feedback. Maybe you are considering a purchase of GIS related hardware or software, or have comments and questions concerning data sharing and integration. You could ask list subscribers for suggestions.
