Court Rules GIS Data Can't Be Kept Secret

NMU (06/16/2005): City must release electronic GIS mapping data

"The Connecticut Supreme Court has ruled that there is not a significant security risk to the town of Greenwich in making its GIS Data available to the public, and therefore must do so. Greenwich had claimed that the data could compromise personal and national security, and was sued under CT Freedom of Information laws. The legal ruling is available here (PDF)."
