Rob Aanstoos - Thank you for an amazing 35 years! by

This is exactly the case with Mr. Rob Aanstoos. Rob is officially retiring at the end of February from Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) where he has worked in the Technology Planning, Policy and Governance section. Rob has been involved with GIS since the earliest days at the State. After 35 years, it will be difficult to see him go.
From the early 1980's Rob had access to the very first "homemade" GIS system in Texas when he worked for TNRIS and the Texas Water Commission (TWC). He was instrumental in bringing change to GIS when he oversaw a committee responsible for acquiring a new commercial GIS system. The TWC eventually selected ESRI Arc/Info as their GIS choice, which ushered in the modern GIS technology era for Texas.
During his tenure, Rob has recognized the importance of GIS in Texas and has been involved in advancing its use. His work has ranged from GIS implementation to policy and governance. As one of the original pioneers, he has paved the way for Texas GIS initiatives.
TNRIS had the opportunity to interview Rob recently about his past 35 years and here's what he said…
TNRIS: Where did you grow up?
Rob: I was born and raised at Lat.30.576546, Lon -97.430609, better known as Taylor, Williamson County, Texas. A young Rob Aanstoos from 1980 sits on a chair
Rob, from all your friends in the GIS community, we wish you all the best and we hope that our actions moving forward will make you proud.
