GIS Users Group (GUG)

The SAP&DC GIS Users Group (GUG) focuses on addressing new technologies, techniques, and applications related to Geographic Information Systems. The group works to develop, implement, and advance GIS use in the region as a way to promote community and economic development.

The GUG meets quarterly to give local GIS professionals an opportunity to network with their peers, share ideas, and disseminate information. Presentations on a variety of topics are frequently given at the meetings by group members, SAP&DC GIS staff and others. The GUG also conducts occasional off-site outreach opportunities such as peer-to-peer workshops and trainings.

Members of the GUG represent various organizations from within the region, such as:

  • County and Municipal Governments
  • Emergency Management Agencies
  • Conservation Districts
  • Colleges and Universities
