Data Center Description
SanGIS was created in July, 1997, as a Joint Powers Agreement (JPA) between the City and County of San Diego. After 13 years of working together on data and application development, the City and County decided to formalize their partnership in GIS by creating the SanGIS JPA. Finding that access to correct and current geographic data was considered more important than application development to County and City departments, SanGIS focuses on ensuring geographic data are maintained and accessible.
The mission of SanGIS is to maintain and promote the use of a regional geographic data warehouse for the San Diego area and to facilitate the development of shared geographic data and automated systems which use that data.
