Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
The Mark Twain Regional Council of Governments (MTRCOG) uses ArcGIS (Geographic Information System) mapping software as a tool in planning and development. MTRCOG has an ESRI trained employee who is available to assist communities with a wide range of mapping needs.
GIS is quickly becoming more widely used by all regional planning commissions, and is used in almost all of our planning documents, such as our Regional Transportation Plan, Community Economic Development Strategy, and Hazard Mitigation Plans.
The Council has other GIS related services it offers member governments such as, use of the HP T1300 plotter/printer for large format maps or documents, and the Trimble GeoCollector handheld mapping grade GPS unit for field data collection.
