About AZGEO

The AZGEO Clearinghouse is an initiative of the Arizona Geographic Information Council. AZGEO is designed to provide GIS users with links to Internet map services, FGDC compliant metadata, and geospatial data downloads. AZGEO is maintained and hosted by the Arizona State Cartographer’s Office. Data on AZGEO includes GIS layers for administrative boundaries, demographic, enviornmental factors, hydrology, imagery, indices, mining, natural features, transportation and more.

How does AZGEO Work?

If your agency creates and manages GIS data that is frequently requested by others, becoming an AZGEO member will allow you to share the data in an effective and convenient manner. AZGEO is organized in groups, making it easier to control the users that can access your contributed data, ensuring security for sensitive data that cannot be shared with the General Public. Additionally, tracking features on the site make it possible to monitor downloads and see who is downloading your data. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Register: create your free account
  2. Create an AZGEO group to represent your Agency: fill out the "Request Group Creation" form
  3. Join Groups: Log in and join the groups that you belong to
  4. Contribute data: Have your agency's Group Admin add the data you wish to share on the Clearinghouse, or delegate the task to a Data Contributor
  5. Approve Group Members: Have members of your agency request to join the group, or manually add group members, so that data can more easily be shared with everyone in your agency
