Butte GIS Working Group

Butte GIS Working Group

BCAG initiated the Butte 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 quarterly 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, metadata, GIS data standards, U.S. Census data, etc.

The Butte County GIS Working Group includes representatives from the following agencies:
  • BCAG
  • CSU, Chico Geographical Information Center
  • Butte College
  • 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
  • CalFire
  • City of Chico Police Department
  • Butte County Air Quality Management District
Meetings are held at 9 am in BCAG's Conference Room at 326 Huss Drive, Suite 150 in Chico. An agenda is distributed approximately one week prior to the meeting date.

North Valley Regional GIS Group

North Valley Regional GIS Group

The North Valley (NV) Regional GIS Group was formed in 2002 with members from Butte, Glenn and Tehama Counties. This group was one of thirteen Regional GIS Councils developed throughout the state on behalf of the California GIS Council. The intent of the Regional Councils is to increase coordination and communication among GIS users throughout the state and to review and make recommendations on items brought forth by the California GIS Council.

The NV Regional GIS Group meets annually or as needed, typically coinciding with meetings of the California GIS Council or the Butte GIS Working Group. Meetings are held in the BCAG Conference Room.  An agenda is sent out to interested parties approximately one week prior to the meeting date.
