GIS Cooperative

U.S. The GIS Cooperative is a GIS Users Group which meets monthly, generally on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.  Members include representatives from City of Tucson, Pima County, other jurisdictions, Pima Association of Governments, the University of Arizona, utilities, private-sector firms, and members of the public in southeastern Arizona.  Anyone with an interest in GIS and related technologies is welcome. 

If you have a GIS-related project you'd like to share with the group, please contact one of our Co-Chairs to get on the agenda of a future GIS Co-op meeting.
