GIS & Mapping

TJCOG produces a wide array of data, information, maps, and models, addressing topics from transportation and land use to demographics and employment, and we have decades of experience using geospatial analysis in support of the organization’s programs and local member data needs. 

TJCOG uses Esri ArcGIS as well as other open-source GIS software to perform geospatial analysis, data geoprocessing, developing and managing geospatial databasescreating online as well as hard-copy maps, and developing web-based GIS Applications. 

Regional GIS Program Highlights

Triangle J Council oGovernments (TJCOG) has partnered with North Carolina Next Generation Network (NCNGN)* to establish a regional GIS program that is being made available to our Members.   The program would enable local jurisdictions to share in benefits of a simplified and cost-effective process for procuring aerial imagery and GIS planimetric data.  The program is currently underway for 2020 with a few organizations on board this first year, with a focus now on expanding participation in the program in 2021.  

For more information on regional GIS collection, please visit the Regional GIS Program Highlights Page.


TJCOG utilizes a variety of publicly-available datasets to help local planners and decision-makers better understand the region and visualize its future.
