Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG)

Group Description: 

The Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) is a Council of Governments (COG) that serves as the regional agency for the metropolitan Phoenix area. MAG is the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for regional planning in the Maricopa region. MAG provides regional planning and policy decisions in areas of transportation, air quality, water quality, and human services. When MAG was formed in 1967, local elected officials recognized the need for long range planning and policy development on a regional scale. They realized that many issues such as transportation and air quality affected residents beyond the borders of their individual jurisdictions. MAG was founded in the spirit of cooperation. MAG members believe that by uniting, they can solve common problems, take an active role in long range regional issues and address concerns that affect all of the communities.At this time, the MAG group on AZGEO is restricted to MAG member agencies only. If you would like to request data from MAG, please contact Jason Howard directly.

Hello all, I was hoping someone could help me with starting up our GIS mapping system here. We recently started using the GIS system but need help starting up with shape files to add layers to pour maps. We are sheduled to get training next month I believe but would like to get ahead of the game and at least get a map started here to toy around with and get somewhat familiar with the system. Does anyone have a aerial file we can add? Or maybe state land boundaries or right-of-ways? Of course, any information help. Thanks in advance.
