Electronic Discussion Lists



The New York State GIS List (GISNY-L) is an open, unmoderated list developed to promote discussion of GIS-related subjects, particularly GIS issues or projects in New York. The list accepts most of the standard distribution list commands.

*Please note that the list does not allow you to subscribe a particular e-mail address; it will automatically use the one from which your subscription message was sent. Therefore, you need to subscribe from your e-mail system, rather than over the Web. And if you use more than one e-mail account, be sure to subscribe from the same one that you want to receive the list messages.

All commands sent to the listserv must be sent as plain text, not as html. Please set the format option in your email program to plain text.

To subscribe, send an e-mail message to:

In the body of the message type the following message, where <Full Name> is the subscriber's name: subscribe gisny-l <Full Name>

To "unsubscribe" to the GISNY List Serve, you may type the following in the body of the message:


(Make sure there is no other text in the body of the message but the text indicated above. Send your e-mail to LISTSERV@LISTSERV.NYSED.GOV)

Please do not post unrelated subject matter to the list. GISNY-L is maintained by the New York State Library; if you have questions about this list please contact us.
