Coastal Geospatial

Data Group


The mission of the Coastal Alabama Geospatial Data Group is to encourage and promote the development and sharing of geospatial data and technology in the coastal Alabama region for the benefit of local, state, and federal agencies and private entities. As GIS technology has become more widely used to mitigate the effects of major storm events, manage vulnerable natural resources, regulate development and land use, and support economic growth, extensive, accurate, and detailed datasets are critical.

In an effort to carry out this mission the CGD group intends to:

        • Encourage collaborative partnerships among member agencies for geospatial data development efforts.
        • Facilitate professional interaction between GIS users in the region.
        • Inform members on available geospatial datasets in the region.
        • Report on current or planned data acquisition or development initiatives in the region.
        • Promote data sharing and public access to geospatial datasets through web services and portals.
        • Encourage geospatial data standards and metadata documentation.
        • Demonstrate and deploy best‐practices for geospatial data development and analysis.
        • Foster training and professional enrichment opportunities for the GIS users in the region.
