This talk will provide a case study of a problem one of our clients and embedded staff had that is likely a common problem across GIS shops, “Where’s that data??”.  GIS has been around long enough that GIS practitioners have a wide variety of places they have pigeon holed data over the years.  These places range from the local users hard drive, portal hard drives on a shelf, ArcGIS Online, SharePoint, Google Drive, Network Attached Storage (NAS) storage, and the organizations central data repository in a relational database.  In addition, most shops have a regular fire hose of new data coming in from a wide variety of sources, such as regional GIS clearing houses, contractors, and federal sources.  Lastly, people likely receive numerous emails, periodicals, and other notification of cool data sites that might “one day” be really handy.  In the talk we will show how our client and our embedded staff overcame the problem of sorting through all these potential data locations and came up with a way to figure out how to answer the question “Where’s that data??”
