GIS Council


The San Diego Regional GIS Council was formed to coordinate regional GIS activities with the California GIS Council.

The San Diego Regional GIS Council (SDRGC) was formed to coordinate regional GIS activities with the California GIS Council. The California GIS Council works to improve coordination within California State government and among federal, state and local governments. The goals of the regional GIS councils are to review the Council’s reports to provide recommendations on policy alignment with local and regional GIS needs and to be a focal point for partnerships to build California’s geographic information framework.

Private sector organizations and individuals are encouraged to attend regional council meetings in an advisory capacity. SDRGC is an information exchange, not a policy-making forum, but the council may make recommendations for consideration by its members.

The mission of the SDRGC is to facilitate cooperation among public agencies in the San Diego Region in promoting the development, acquisition and dissemination of Geographic Information Systems infrastructure and geospatial data.

The goals of the council are:

  • To improve operations and facilitate new analyses and joint decision making.
  • To provide a forum for information sharing and collaboration.
  • To realize economies of scale through joint purchase projects.
  • To pursue partnerships for geospatial projects on a regional basis.
  • To promote the goals of the California GIS Council.
  • To coordinate the activities of the San Diego Regional Host Committee at the annual ESRI International User Conference held each summer in San Diego.

Meeting schedules and more information may be found on the San Diego Regional GIS Council web page.
