Starkville, Miss., 21 June 2010 — Spatial Information Solutions, Inc. (SIS), received such valuable feedback from users on the first release of Accuracy Analyst, the company decided to add a forum to its website to facilitate user input. “By enabling users to see the suggestions and feedback of others, we hope to foster a sense of community among our users and to see good ideas made even better by the interaction,” said Dr. Charles O’Hara, company President. “Our users are finding new ways to fit Accuracy Analyst into their workflows to accomplish more than we originally imagined. When they use the forum to share these ideas, the entire mapping profession will benefit.”
The forum, http://spatialis.com/forum/, opened with three topics: “Software Suggestions,” “Accuracy Analyst Support and Help,” and “What’s New in Map Accuracy Tools.” Users are invited and encouraged to register, ask questions and leave comments.
In addition, SIS has a twitter account, www.twitter.com/spatialis, as another tool to engage the community.
SIS has also recently posted a five-minute video, “Getting Started with Accuracy Analyst,” to YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ack8W6sCUKw.
The plan is to create and share short videos that will demonstrate what the software does and how to use it. “We envision a family of videos because showing often communicates so much more effectively than telling,” noted Leslie O’Hara, Vice President and Director of Communications.
