What is GIS?

A GIS is a computer-assisted system for assembling, storing, manipulating, and displaying geographically referenced information, i.e. data identified according to their locations.

COG GIS Services

The staff of the Mid-Willamette Valley Council of Governments works regularly with the Salem-Keizer School District, Yamhill County and member cities developing GIS Centric Web Applications and assisting with their planning, communications, and transportation needs.

We help members with GIS technology with the delivery and planning of government or nonprofit services.
