Mapping & GIS
The BCDCOG GIS department provides a variety of digital mapping solutions and geo-spatial data services for member governments, municipalities, and the general public. GIS has played an active role in regional transportation, environmental, and land-use planning initiatives. In addition, the GIS department continues to provide technical services, such as zoning and parcel mapping, for a number of the smaller municipalities within our region.
Other responsibilities undertaken by the GIS department include: providing agency-wide analysis and support, hazard mitigation planning, transportation modeling, environmental mapping, and regional demographic analysis. Our experienced GIS staff utilizes a state-of-the-art computer lab, which is equipped with the entire suite of ESRI mapping products, TransCAD, and an extensive graphics software library. We routinely use these tools to produce custom maps and data to meet the planning needs of the BCDCOG region.
