GIS Cooperative

The GIS Cooperative is a GIS Users Group which meets monthly, generally on the 2nd Friday 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 is welcome to participate.  If you have a GIS-related project you'd like to share, please contact one of our co-chairs to get on the agenda of a future GIS Co-op meeting.
