Data Committee


The mission of the Data Committee is to promote geospatial data sharing and appropriate strategies to support AZGEO, facilitate interagency coordination of geospatial data sharing to enhance and support state, federal, and local government business systems, and to incorporate user requirements on matters related to geospatial data, services, standards, applications, and activities to improve data sharing and use.  The committee accomplishes this by providing a forum and structure to discuss current geospatial data, initiatives and technologies; facilitating interagency coordination and encouraging geospatial data sharing; and developing a Data Management Plan to facilitate data sharing and use of AZGeo as Arizona’s statewide geospatial clearinghouse. 

Standing items of discussion include:

  • Statewide data coordination
  • National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP)
  • Three Dimensional Elevation Program (3DEP)
  • The National Address Database (NAD)
  • Census & Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA)
  • All Roads Network of Linear referenced Data (ARNOLD)
