GIS Users: 

Access to a variety of educational and informational resources to help GIS users maximize their investment in GIS tools and technology. WAGISA programs and services help users accelerate their GIS programs via access to the extensive knowledge base that our members represent.

GIS Professionals: 

WAGISA is committed to advancing the GIS profession in Washington State. Our events and publications facilitate the sharing of GIS ‘best practices.’ Many of our events provide GIS professionals with credit for GIS Certification, and our support of the GIS Code of Ethics advances the standing of the profession.

Other GIS User Groups: 

WAGISA is not the only organization that serves GIS users and professionals in the state. We coordinate and cooperate with local ‘grass roots’ GIS user groups, state or regional chapters of other professional organizations (URISA, GITA, ASPRS, ACSM, etc.), and GIS organizations in nearby states and in Canada.

GIS Service Providers & Vendors: 

Vendors and GIS service providers are a key part of the Washington GIS Community and WAGISA depends on their generous support. We provide GIS vendors and service providers with value as well, by offering a variety of venues for the community to publicize how they have used outside GIS services or products to help meet their business needs.
