On October 17, 2006, we lost a valued friend and colleague.
Bill did much to advance geospatial science in Michigan. Among his many accomplishments, Bill can be credited with bringing GIS software to local government through C-Map, Landscan, and the Michigan MapImage Viewer. Additionally, Bill was the co-founder of IMAGIN (Improving Michigan's Access to Geographic Information Networks), served on the board of LIAA (Land Information Access Association), and was a recipient of many prestigious awards.
Bill was a dedicated employee of RS&GIS for over 30 years.
