The GIS Program was formed from a partnership with local governments and the TCOG Public Safety Program to provide rural addressing. This collaboration has been very successful and allowed for the GIS Program to build increasingly important datasets that help make important decisions for a fast growing region.
The GIS Program encourages a spirit of cooperation among all GIS professionals by hosting GIS Regional Meetings. These meetings allow GIS professionals to compare notes, reduce duplication of efforts and receive advanced training.
The GIS Program also has worked diligently in the same spirit to coordinate regional aerial imagery acquisition. The region has been working to combine resources in purchasing these high quality images which has allowed for cost reductions for everyone involved.
A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information.
GIS allows us to view, understand, question, interpret, and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts.

Since 2008, TCOG and the GIS Program have been involved with the purchasing of Aerial Imagery for the Region. Using a Regional purchasing agreement, we have been able to save funds for our local governments. The GIS programs are working on efforts to continue the acquisition of future imagery and to host the imagery out to local governments.
