Governor appoints Bailey to state commission

Hall County GIS Coordinator Bailey Gibson has been appointed to the Nebraska Geographic Information Systems Council by Gov. Pete Ricketts.

Gibson’s appointment continues through Sept. 9.

The GIS Council has nearly 30 representatives from state, county, municipal, and federal government agencies, as well as other public and private entities that use GIS/geospatial technologies. It was established by the Nebraska Legislature in 1991 and serves as the state’s primary oversight group for the development of standards, strategies, and policies related to the creation and use of geospatial data and technologies.

Gibson also serves on the Hall County/City of Grand Island Interlocal GIS Committee. She was instrumental in launching the Hall County GeoHub website, where maps, GIS data, and applications are available to the public. Her GIS skills have also assisted in tasks such as verifying land record data, mapping the roads damaged by the 2019 floods, mapping proposal and impact areas for the Hall County board, and verifying political subdivision boundaries for the Hall County election office.

She has worked for Hall County since 2013 and has served as the GIS coordinator since 2017. She holds a bachelor of science degree in geography from Wayne State College in Wayne.

Bailey and her husband, Scott, live in Grand Island with their two children.
