you know, in June 2005, Fairfax County ranked the number
one county for jurisdictions with populations over 500,000,
according to a survey by the Center for Digital Government
and the National Association of Counties. Furthermore,
in 2005 Fairfax County earned an "A" in Information
Technology Management as cited in the Governing Magazine.
Many other awards and accomplishments have been bestowed
on our county due to the outstanding and forward thinking
initiatives taken by the Department of Information Technology
outstanding and forward thinking initiatives have not
only kept Fairfax County on the cutting edge of technological
advancements and created performance benchmarks but
have also enabled county residents to access online
information and resources.
the "Land Use Information on the Web" seminar,
Fairfax County Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
Division of DIT will be presenting land use resources
and information that are available on the web and how
those resources can be accessed by residents. GIS staff
will also be available to answer questions and solicit
feedback on how user access can be enhanced.
would like to take this opportunity to invite the Board,
county staff and residents to this seminar and request
that the Office of Public Affairs help publicize this
