BACOG GIS mapping facilitates the use of spatial technologies and information access to improve intergovernmental coordination on cooperative issues. This information allows us to see patterns, manage resources and communicate more easily.

A geographic information system (GIS) is a system that creates, manages, analyzes, and maps all types of data. GIS connects data to a map, integrating location data (where things are) with all types of descriptive information (what things are like there). This provides a foundation for mapping and analysis that is used in science and almost every industry. GIS helps users understand patterns, relationships, and geographic context. The benefits include improved communication and efficiency as well as better management and decision making.

BACOG is pleased to provide free access to a wealth of geographic information about our region. Our Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping products and web map application can give you a chance to observe many characteristics of the Barrington Area, such as jurisdictional boundaries, various districts, groundwater monitoring program components, and links to property details.
