Geographic Information Systems, or GIS, has become part of the planners' lexicon. It provides a platform to analyze and display data and information spatially. A broad range of data elements are used by planners: land use and natural features, roadway networks and their attributes, transit networks and their attributes, crash records, forecasts from travel demand models, and more.

The GIS Working Group is a profession network for planners and technicians in MPOs and New York State DOT who create and use GIS based information.

GIS Working Group Goals

  1. Knowledge Transfer: Conduct in-person meetings as the primary means for sharing practices and information on opportunities. Supplement or replace in-person meetings with virtual meetings as needed.

  2. Data Collection and Assessment: Identify, compile, and assess spatial data that is useful to MPOs and their member agencies and, to the extent practical, partner organizations.

  3. Coordination: Utilize the Working Group as a forum for coordination with partner organizations to obtain and share data and practices.

  4. Software: Ensure that GIS software applications are consistent across the MPOs in New York State to the greatest extent practical.

  5. Training: Identify training opportunities to improve the technical capabilities of MPO staff.
