Welcome to the Tri-lakes GIS Users Group home page!
(TRILRGUG) is a group of professionals that utilize Geographic Information Systems. We meet with others in the local area to address challenges, problems, and exchange solutions. We also strive to stay current and up-to-date with new technologies that arise within the world of G.I.S. Membership is free and open to anyone with an interest in G.I.S. and its related technology. This is a great way to meet and talk with people that have the same interests.
