The following is from the document:
This paper takes a critical look at the lessons learned and techniques that worked in building Vermont's geographic information system. The lessons summarized will include: introducing GIS into small municipalities; confronting public access issues straight on; developing and adopting standards; coming to grips with quality assurance issues; data sharing complexities; data development realities; providing outreach and education; and many institutional lessons. These lessons should offer many valuable insights into establishing a multi-participant GIS.
