BCAG initiated a GIS Working Group in 2000 to coordinate GIS planning activities between BCAG, its member agencies and other outside government agencies in Butte County. Meetings are held bi-monthly to discuss the development of common GIS data layers that can be used by all public agencies in the region. The meetings also serve as a forum to cooperatively develop joint GIS projects with other agencies, with a goal of reducing redundancy of effort and costs of developing GIS projects for each agency.
A variety of other GIS topics are regularly discussed, including the use of GIS data projections, metadata, GIS data standards, U.S. Census data, etc.
The Butte County GIS Working Group includes representatives from the following agencies:
- CSU, Chico Geographical Information Center
- City of Chico
- City of Oroville
- Town of Paradise
- Paradise Irrigation District
- South Feather Water and Power
- Mooretown Rancheria
- Butte County GIS Division
- Butte County Assessor's Office
- City of Chico Police Department
Meetings are held the third Tuesday of odd numbered months at 9 am in BCAG's Conference Room at 2580 Sierra Sunrise Terrace, Suite 100 in Chico. An agenda is distributed approximately one week prior to the meeting date.
