Scott has had a connection with Land Records since 1997 when he started to map and inventory gullies using GIS in Scott County MN on a summer internship. He respects GIS and Land Records community and it's very broad applications to help protect and manage the land we care about yet realizes the importance of the private ownership rights and the implications regulations have on them. Scott is an advocate on the public dispersal of land records data required and developed by local, regional, state and federal units of government so we all can fairly question and contest governments decisions.
