Cooperative consortium efforts between local governments and interested partners geared at acquiring aerial imagery and terrain mapping have a long and successful history in Wisconsin. Starting with a seven-county consortium in SW Wisconsin in 1995 and culminating with statewide imagery in 2010, our state’s grass roots efforts in geospatial data consortiums have resulted in some of the most successful, detailed and repeatable consortium efforts anywhere in the nation. This presentation will review the history, challenges, and lessons learned from the 1995, 2000, 2005 and 2010 consortium efforts.
