Pima Association of Governments' GIS program develops and produces data sets and maintains several GIS data layers and databases. The program provides GIS modeling, analysis and mapping for PAG programs and jurisdiction members. The program also manages the Regional Remote Sensing Program. Other GIS analysis and products include the following:
PAG produces customized maps ranging from simple location maps to complex GIS applications that use various database and data layers. GIS is used to support PAG's major program areas with planning applications, such as demographics, environment, land use and transportation.
The mapping products are produced in hard copy formats and digital files such as pdfs and ESRI shapefiles.
Interactive Map Applications
PAG has several online mapping applications. The applications allow users to view GIS layers created and maintained by PAG together with imagery (orthophotography) and elevation data.
Aerial Imagery (Orthophotography) Elevation Data Sets
Since 1988, PAG has obtained orthophotos for eastern Pima County. The latest imagery was obtained in April 2008. Information and elevation data may be ordered online.
LiDAR - Light Detection and Ranging
Lidar is a remote sensing system used to collect elevation data. PAG has incorporated LiDAR data sets commencing with its 2005 aerial flight. Bare-Earth digital elevation models were also derived from the LiDAR data sets for PAG's 2008 Ortho Project. The LiDAR elevation data set (DEM-Bare Earth) can be ordered online.
