Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

SECOG utilizes Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to produce various types of maps for its members. For example, land use maps are created for local governments in conjunction with their comprehensive plans and grant applications. Additional maps such as zoning, voting wards, environmental constraints, disaster preparation, utilities, community directories and ownership parcels are other examples of maps produced by SECOG using GIS.

SECOG also contracts with the South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT) to maintain a public road inventory for its six-county service area. SECOG utilizes the Global Positioning System (GPS) to collect centerline information and other data for approximately 7,630 miles of roads. The data is updated annually and is archived with the SDDOT in a geodatabase format.
